I know where I can see basic information about my PC, like the processor or the RAM. But I want to see information about my graphics card or motherboard. Without knowing these things, I can't tell if I have what a game needs in order to run on my PC.

How can I find this information?

@gnomeslice I didn't know that there was this side of the site. If I have any similar questions I will post them there – giorgos123 Dec 23 '12 at 20:53
A good resource is Can you run it? which solves your underlying problem without having to know all your system specs in detail. – agent86 Dec 23 '12 at 22:36

Press Windows + r to open the run dialog, type dxdiag, and press Enter. This will run a short diagnostic program, then open a window giving you detailed information about all aspects of your computer.
