How to know that I have the correct graphic card?

I ordered an XPS Studio with a 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 Graphics card. 

When I look at the device properties it says  ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series, there are 3 models for this series; how can I know that I got the correct graphic card model?

Have you looked at the card itself?

You can also use a free utility such as GPU-Z that will ID the card.

Hi Jeff, 

I tried your suggestion with the GPU-Z, it still showed the series name in general. No information as to which model it is or if I have the 5870 or not. 

I'll try to look at the hardware graphic card again once Dell has shipped to me the missing 2GB RAM they owe me.

Regards,
