How about just looking at the BIOS POST screen when the computer boots?

If you''re wanting to find this out through software, that''s highly OS dependent. For example, on Linux you find it in /proc/meminfo. On Windows, you can find it through GlobalMemoryStatusEx(). On other OS-es, you get it some other way. Check the appropriate SDK documentation.
