How do I tell what Nvidia card I have without opening up the computer?

My father gave me an Nvidia 6800 GT and I installed it in my computer. It is a fine card but I really want a video card that does TV capture. I would like to sell this card but I don’t know whether it is an Ultra,XT,OC, ……etc. How do I find out exactly what card it is without opening the case?

how are you going to sell it without opening your computer?

I will take it out of the computer once I know what it is and once I have sold it. If it doesn’t sell then it will stay in the computer. I didn’t want to have to pull it in and out of the computer. I wanted to know if there was a good way to tell what it is without taking it out. I couldn’t tell what it was just by looking at it.

If it was a 6800GT then it is a 6800GT. :) The only thing which you need to be able to figure out is if it is an AGP version or a PCI-E version. If you have the older nvidia drivers installed with the old control panel, you can right click on the desktop, choose properties. Then click on the tab all the way to the right labeled settings. Then press the advanced button. This takes you to another screen where you can click on the geforce tab. If there isn't a geforce tab, then you don't have nvidia drivers installed. If you do have the tab, you can look on the first page that comes up and it will tell you what type of card it is.

Are you saying that it doesn’t matter whether it is an XT,OC,Ultra, …. Etc?

I found out how to do it here.

That is correct. The 6000 series didn't have as crazy of naming conventions as we have now. There was only a 6800 vanilla, a 6800GT and a 68000 Ultra.

go to start of windows and pull it up, then go to Run and type in
"dxdiag" = meaning direct x diagnostic and on the display page will tell the type of video card. If that doesnt work you can go to google and download
CPUZ and then run it that should tell what video card you have..
