command line for determining memory type

Is there a command line command I can type in to figure out exactly what type of memory I have in my machine?

If you have lmsensors installed in your kernel, the command "sensors" should give you memory information. You can also try the command "lspci -vv" to give you a list of hardware information. If all else fails, open your case and take a look.
