I guess 'lspci -nn' or 'lshw' command will list all your hardware profile.

To change your ip type in the following
ifconfig ethX aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd netmask
or you can change it in your /etc/network/interfaces and just do a restart on networking

/etc/init.d/network or networking restart

to view your graphics card
lspci -v
to view the memory
lspci -v -s 00:02:0
you may have to change the end to what ever is next to your graphics card.
