As Dylan has already mentioned, lspci will show you your installed
PCI devices, generally including your video card.

Also your X-server log should tell you what card you are using. Of
course this will not help much if you are trying to find the identity of
your card because your X is misconfigured. (You didn't say the
circumstances of your curiosity.)

You can also try running

   X -configure

which attempts to autodetect the video card; it works on most PCI and
AGP cards.

If it is Debian or Ubuntu:

   dpkg -l | grep gl

If it is an rpm-based distribution, such as Fedora:

   rpm --query -a | grep gl
