Besides lspci and lsusb, I like lshw.

 	sys-apps/lshw

>From the man page:

lshw is a small tool to extract detailed information  on  the  hardware
configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory configuration,
firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version and speed, cache
configuration,  bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86 or IA-64 systems and
on some PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work).

It currently supports DMI (x86 and  IA-64  only),  OpenFirmware device
tree  (PowerPC only), PCI/AGP, CPUID (x86), IDE/ATA/ATAPI, PCMCIA (only
tested on x86), SCSI and USB.

How much am I supposed to trim from the quoted article???
