Speccy v1.17.340 (11 Jul 2012)

About:
What's in your computer? If you're like most of us, you can probably name the processor (Intel or AMD, Celeron or Pentium), maybe how much RAM it has, and maybe how big the hard drive is.

When you go to a computer store and see all the bright shiny PCs laid out next to each other, most will have tags or stickers indicating the:

Processor brand and model
Hard drive size and speed
Amount of memory (RAM)
Graphics card
Operating system

Two or three years later, when it comes time to upgrade your computer, that tag or sticker may be long gone. Speccy was designed as a free electronic "what's inside" sticker for your PC.

Yeah it's not a bad little program. It's nice to throw on a flash drive if you have to go fix a computer. At least then you know what you're dealing with and what to look for when updating drivers.
