What Is Inside My New Computer?

Hey everyone,

I finally got my new computer from Dell. I got an XPS 700 that I ordered on July 3rd....

Anyways, I know what I ordered and what should have come inside my computer. However, the only thing I can find that Windows says is inside, is my processor, ram, and hard drive.

I paid for Dual Nvidia 7900 GTX cards. However, how do I know if I only got one? The reason I ask is because I open the nVidia settings and as far as I can tell, it is only talking about one card.

Is there a program that I can run that will say every spec about my computer?

Thanks!

This might help you find what your looking for...

Click on,
Start
Control Panel
System
Hardware (tab)
Device Manager

in there is a pretty thorough list.

Solution 1: Look on the back, see if there is a row of monitor ports, then look to see if there is another row of monitor ports.

Solution 2: Open up your case look inside and see if there are 2 video cards.

This is assuming of course by Dual Nvidia you are talking about SLI setup

I've used this for years. Great tool that'll give you much more information than Device Manager. It's good for burn in tests too.

If you build your own, you would never have to ask that question.

Woz is the winner. The 7900s do not have the dual core setup. Thats only the 7950s.

If you truly have SLI, which I assume you do, you'll find that you physically have two video cards conntected together by a small strip.

Also, which drivers are you running? The most recent released drivers are 91.47, which came out yesterday.

That being said, the older driver set, 91.31, has this little bubble window pop-up and say "SLI configuration has been disabled........." if you're not running SLI. Not sure if it does the same in the new driver set because I haven't installed it.

Thanks guys. I got the karen ware to work and checked in the device manager. I do in fact have the dual SLI setup as promised. I just wanted to make sure as the computer was re-ordered twice because Dell was having trouble manufacturing them.

Sorry to dissapoint those that build their own computers. Didn't feel like doing it this time. I will just continuesly upgrade this Dell as there is so much room for expansion.

Thanks again everyone.
