    Code:
    lshw -C video
    should do it.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.

    C == seriously fast == FTW!

    Another is
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    Thats helpful if you happen to run a distro that does not include lshw by default.

    If you have windows as wel there are several hardware info utilites, such as
    Sisoft Sandra and AIDA32 which will also sort of stuff about your hardware.

    There isn't a version of SiSoft Sandra for Linux, as far as I can tell. I'm almost certain it's a Windows tool:
