I have looked in system info and it just says:
x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 6

What does that translate to?

That tells you the brand and type of processor you have. You can find the speed by Start > Run > tpe "MSInfo32" and that will bring up the Windows system info screen. Halfway down that screen will be your processor details, including the speed.

The URL below is a link to an Intel app to help you identify your CPU. I've never used it, but I'm sure it does the trick.

A freeware app I have used, which gives you more info you need to know about your processor is WCPUID, available from:

Or you could open up your case ;-)
