csComputerInfo (The Vista Edition) is a free software that lets you view system information with real-time monitoring of CPU usage, memory usage, and hard drive read usage. The real-time monitoring feature is quite useful and differentiates it from some similar system information software. It scans your PC configuration and shows information about hardware components and Operating System installed on your PC. You can quickly view information about BIOS vendor, Total CPU/Cores, Physical memory, video card model, Windows version, hard drive details, and more.
csComputerInfo was designed to run on Windows Vista, but it runs fine with other versions of Windows as well, like Windows 7. Plus it provides flexibility in choosing to scan the whole computer, or the specific part, such as scan CPU Info, Memory Info, Video Info etc.
In above screenshot, you can see the main interface of csComputerInfo, where it is showing hardware and Operating System details. To get details, you need to scan your PC. After completion of scanning, csComputerInfo will provide this information in different tabs.
You can find tabs, like CPU tab, Motherboard, Memory, Video, Windows OS, and Drive on top part of csComputerInfo’s interface. Each tab contains information on particular hardware part. For example, if you want to get motherboard details, then access Motherboard tab for that and you can get motherboard manufacturer, model number, version, release date, etc. In the similar way, you can use other tabs.
