OK, so I ran across this thread in my search for an answer to the same question, and no one mentioned a product I came across that will do the job very well. Problem is, I sign up to this forum and can't reply, because:

Also, just to note... "Hard Info" isn't listed as such when you go and try to open the program. It stores itself at System-Preferences and is named "System Profiler and Benchmark."

I posted here with intention to ask that question, but took 1 last look and found it. Figured I'd let you folks know.

Oh, and as always, it's also accessible via command line @ "hardinfo."
