Well my parents, my grandfather, and a lot of my customers just shriek at the idea of "opening their computer." No matter how easy it is to open, a lot of people may get it open and it will all look Greek to them. I could open a computer and ask my mom, dad, grandfather, etc. to name a component... and they couldn't. So how the heck is somebody (no offence to the OP) who may not be as computer literate as others be able to get a model # off of a video card? Hell, sometimes even I have trouble identifying the model of a NIC from time to time. Why don't you ease up?
