This happens to me every time I want to install a new distribution of Linux in my Desktop PC, I just can't remember what is the model of my video card so I can install the correct drivers. Fortunately Linux has enough tools to help you, and this time the tool is lspci.

Let's see how simple it is:

lspci | grep VGA

And you will get an output like this:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

That was simple and easy.
