Found this nice program called CPU-Z. Have a look at the following
screenshots. You can download it here. This is ideal for people whou like to overclocker there PC's.
You may notice my CPU is running just over 1Ghz. The reason is I'm running Cool 'n' Quite.
looks really neat but I don't understand a word of what it says there lol...

Here you go
This gives you information about what CPU chip you have. If you had an Intel it would say Prescott, Northridge etc. If you had an AMD like me it would say San Diego, Venice, Sledghammer etc.
It tells what socket you have and what are the clock speeds. Plus how much voltage is going into your CPU.
This is quite important. The higher the cache (pronounced CASH) the faster the computer runs. It works on the principle that during normal operation a CPU is more likely to need recently used piece of data than some other random data. Using this principle it is possible to increase system performance by having a small amount of very fast RAM, a cache, to hold recently used data, rather than storing it in main system RAM.
This gives you what type of motherboard you are using, the model number. It also tells what version BIOS you are using.
This tells you how much memory you have and what timings they're running at.
This tells you what OS (Operation System) you are using and what version of DirectX you are using.
I hope this information has been useful.
The same as above but a bit more information. Like what type of RAM you have. Who the maufacturer is. Serial number.
thanks for taking your time to write that post Liono, I'm very greatful.
I have to admit that this stuff still seems complicated to me, but your post did explain some important words and therefore clarified a lot. ty
