    That's your graphics card.

    EDIT: Apparently the support for this type of card in Linux is not very good, BTW.

    I found a 10-year-old Windows driver for that graphics adapter. The whole point of SiS graphics was to reduce cost, so your graphics adapter wasn't very good -- 10 years ago.

    Re: How do I know which graphics card I am using?

    Thx howefield for making a new topic!
    it makes sense the card is old because I built the computer from parts out of the
    Junkyard! Really appreciate the help guys.

    Thx a whole lot!

    EDIT: Would this card be able to run minecraft?
