With Suse, you probably have the hwinfo utility installed.

You can query these hardware items using hwinfo:
--<hwitem>
Probe for the particular hardware item. Available hardware items are: all, bios, block, bluetooth, braille, bridge, camera, cdrom, chipcard, cpu, disk, dsl, dvb, floppy, framebuffer, gfx-card, hub, ide, isapnp, isdn, joystick, keyboard, memory, modem, monitor, mouse, netcard, network, partition, pci, pcmcia, pcm‐cia-ctrl, pppoe, printer, scanner, scsi, smp, sound, storage- ctrl, sys, tape, tv, usb, usb-ctrl, vbe, wlan, and zip.

hwinfo --gfscard would probe the graphics card and show you the result.

hwinfo --all would show you the all hardware it is programmed to detect.

There are also apps in your "Control panel" that will list all of your hardware that is recognised by the OS.

fastest == lspci

If you're feeling exceptionally geeky, you can root around in the /proc directory. I wouldn't write to anything in there, but viewing the files in there will tell you exactly what the kernel is seeing as its running.

Very informative stuff.
