    Default best pc hardware identifier program

    does anyone know which is the best free software that gives you detailed info of ur pc hardware like the ram type,cpu type,etc.something that gives more details than the windows device manager? I've used Aida32 for a few years but just wondering if there is anything better than that.

    Everest Home was pretty good. Some places still mirror the free version so have a look

    I also like Everest Home.

    SiSoftware's Sandra is another. The free lite version should do what you want.

    I haven't tried anything other than Belarc, which gives me as much info as I need.

    I have been using SIW (System Info) which tells you everything you want to know and more about your system. Grab it from here.

    The newer version of Everest: Ultimate Edition is absolutely marvellous! Home Edition is superceded by Ultimate

    Everest doesn't give much more information than belrac, but the presentation of that information is far superior.
