How do I determine the make and model of a graphics card installed in a Dell Desktop?

Belarc Advisor doesn't identify anything, and the model, a Dell Optiplex 780, has 5 different models to choose driver downloads for on their website.

Thanks. It's hard to tell which downlink is an advertisement for some other driver utility, and which link is the HWINFO program. It did identify the model which I had just installed drivers for (as a guess), so I hope it is not reading software, but hardware. –  Steve Mar 25 '11 at 8:39

Follow this link. This will give you a prompt command to type in to get your graphic card details.

Thanks. I might have to get C3-PO or R2-D2 to decipher the output. :P –  Steve Mar 25 '11 at 8:34
    
The output is simply 00IBM VGA Compatible BIOS. Are you sure it is not identifying the software? –  Steve Mar 25 '11 at 8:35

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  soandos Jul 17 '12 at 4:21
