Default how do i check my 3d video card??

sponsored links

 
i need to download the latest driver so counter strike will work using 3D. How do i find out exactly what kind of card i have, bar taking the thing apart. I have sandra installed but still cant figure out if i have 3d now or 3dlabs or whatever card. its an old amd system so i think it might be 3dnow but im not sure...

Use Sandra and go to video system information. It should tell you the card and the driver, version, and a ton of other things.

Also when you first turn your PC on it should give some information about what graphics card is installed

It's an SiS 6326. Unfortunately I don't think a driver update will ever get you the 3D performance you want or need for counter strike. You should consider a newer video card.
