I''m making a Windows application using C++. The program must get information about the system it''s running on, such as processor type and speed, amount of ram installed, video card model. How can I do this? There must be some functions in the Windows API that perform this task, but I''ve failed to find them...

You''re pretty much on your own.
Processor type: very basic info returned by GetSystemInfo, otherwise CPUID
speed: RDTSC
RAM installed: GlobalMemoryStatus
video card model: glGetString(GL_RENDERER)

If there''s an easier way, I''d love to know.
