I seemed to have hoarded three old graphics card, no idea of what they are because they don't seem to have any identifying marks on them.

I know they are Nvidia, but since there is a lot of different designs for the same specs more or less, it's hard to identify them without the need of putting them in my system, which Windows might not like, let alone other software

How do I identify them?

Is there a bar code on a sticker on the back?

Yeah, do I check the serial number somewhere?

If the part number (p/n) is there it'd be easier to look up.

What a waste of a thread. I've only gone and looked at my orders on Amazon. Yes, I did find them there...cripes....getting old I guess
