    Code:
    sudo lshw -C memory
    There are also several GUI tools, such as hardinfo and sysinfo.

    lshw is awesome. I usually do something like:

    Code:
    sudo lshw > hardware.txt
    then

    Code:
    gedit hardware.txt
    It will give you a lot of info on the system--not just the ram.

    Look in the BIOS for that information.
