sudo lshw should be what you need

Why I can't find the video card's type? – sam Sep 24 '11 at 15:39
you should find it under *-display (possibly under *-pci:0 if your card is pci) – laurent Sep 24 '11 at 17:00
obs: if you want an html output (better to look at), use sudo lshw -html > hwlist.html and open the file created with a browser. If you want only the display adapter name: sudo lshw -short | grep display – laurent Sep 24 '11 at 17:12
