Inside the Computer

Is there a program which will accurately identify internal components(CPU, Motherboard, HD, Video Card, Sound Card, etc...), or is this "wishful" thinking on my part?
That is, I have known of and tried several such programs, yet there seems to be a stated issue of "not 100% accurate".

Thanks

Also you will not find a program that is 100% accurate, some hardware is too similar to other hardware and a program may misID it. The only sure method is to remove the cover and look at it yourself.

You may also want to try SiSoft Sandra - http://www.sisoftware.demon.co.uk/san_dem/html/dload.htm
There are no 100% guarantees.  Just try out quite a few and use the version that gives the best performance.
