Default Min requirments???

ok i bought this game called Company of Heros... well i installed the game and it says that I do not met the min requirments. I am not sure of which thing that i do not meet. I dont know which things my comp has. The min reqiurments are:
MINIMUM

• Windows® XP or Vista
• 2.0 Ghz Intel Pentium IV or equivalent or AMD Athlon XP or equivalent
• 512 MB RAM
• 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible 64MB video card with Pixel Shader 1.1 support or equivalent and latest manufacturer drivers (see supported chipsets below)
• DirectX® 9.0c compatible 16-bit sound card
• 8x or faster CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive
• Keyboard, Mouse
• 6.5 GB of uncompressed free hard drive space (We recommend having 1 gigabyte of of free space after installation)


How do I find out what things my comp has???

when you are on the screen you want to capture you need to press the 'PRINT SCREEN' button and then go to something like paint in winxp and paste then save as a jpeg file and then post it! easy
