It's common knowledge that the PC you specify or order via a magazine might not end up as the PC you receive. If you've specified a graphics card upgrade, how do you know if you've received your upgrade? Your PC might be sealed for warranty reasons, which means you can't take it apart.
It's not all bad news though. Often a PC is upgraded between your order and receipt. Some PC manufacturers build your PC on demand, so you might find that your system hard drive has been upgraded from a 250GB to a 300GB, despite what it states on your invoice.
There's an easy way of finding out what's in your PC: simply run a full system audit, using software such as Belarc Advisor or SiSoft Sandra, which has been around for ages. Another alternative is the popular SIW, Fresh Diagnose or for the system professional, Everest Ultimate Edition. The bonus is that these apps will not only audit your machine, they'll also tell you if everything is working correctly.
