How do I tell which type of graphics card I need?

Hello,
I connect to several remote computers for video recording of cable TV. I would like to replace the graphics card in my remote computers. How can I find out which type of slot my graphics card is in "remotely". I connect via LogMeIn.com. I need to determine which type of card will be compatible before I arrive on site for the change.
Thanks!

  1. Does it give you full access? Like a virtual desktop for that computer?
  2. inside of the logmein window for the relevent computer...
    Start>>Run>>type "dxdiag" >>hit enter>>Click on Display.

    Are you recording the logmein window or just using the remote desktop to have the computer record it's source? I never had a high res screen going through logmein.

  6. IMO the situation is not wherein you need a specific type of card for your purpose.. Even onboard video will do..

    It is not doing. I need to help, not IMO's.
  8. Oh well.. Completely misunderstood your query.. Sorry about that.. Running 'dxdiag' , as has been mentioned by others, should get it done for you..

    Can you not run GPUz or CPUz remotely?
