After 8 months to a year of owning a new computer I tend to forget my system specs… and I custom build the freakin’ things. Years ago when I would build a computer and I was unaware of any software around to grab the system info for me I would need to open up the computer case to look up the information. This was a major pain in the butt.
[adblockingdetector id=”2″]It is hard to read specific card, RAM or motherboard model numbers when they are in the case. Sometimes I had to remove memory chips, sound, video and other circuit boards just to find the specific information I wanted. I could imagine if you purchased the computer at a store or had someone else build it for you. You would probably forget your computer specs within a matter of months, if you knew your full system specs at all. Things have changed. You can now find your CPU, RAM, Motherboard, Video card, Hard drive, Optical drive and Sound card info within seconds. The fastest and easiest way to look up that info is by using a free program by the company Piriform. The program is called Speccy.
