Thanks for the tip on lshw. I installed the package. I had to run it as lshw > ~/hardware. The hardware file then had all the information I needed. I will look at your other suggestions because keeping up with the nvidia drivers on a linux system is a pain. dmidecode only seemed to give information on devices that were a integral part of the cpu system and not to devices attached to the system such as monitors.
