Try CPU-Z. It has worked great for me in the past.

Depending on how much detail you need, you can try dxdiag. Type dxdiag into the Run box and hit enter.

For detailed information, the previously mentioned CPU-Z and BlackBox are great. Here's some shots of BlackBox:

SiSoftware Sandra Lite (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a non-commercial freeware.

SiSoftware Sandra is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software.

It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what's really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, PCI, PCI-X, PCIe (PCI Express), database, USB, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.

Since a download link for it is somewhat hard to find on, here it is on filehippo.
