Annoying very.
Q:  Top posting is...?

(Of course, note that you should trim quotes to the context to which you
are replying as well, which top-quoting, as opposed to top-posting,
encourages.  If you would have trimmed what you were quoting to the
above, sufficient to establish context, then I would not have needed to do
it for you, here, and the context would have been sufficiently established
so all I would have needed to do would have been to post my reply, plus
possibly trimming out deeper nested quoting, if you had included it, since
it's no longer necessary to establish the context to which I'm now
replying.)

To answer your question, try lspci (ls for the PCI bus).  If the output
isn't verbose enough to give you the detail you need, try lspci -v (for
verbose).  It's a /very/ handy program to keep in your virtual toolbox,
particularly if you don't fancy opening up your box all the time to read
stuff off of the various chips and cards, let alone that even doing that
wouldn't directly give you the same level of detail that lspci -v does.
lspci is part of pciutils, in case you don't already have it merged, but
you likely do, at least if you have either alsa-utils or hotplug merged.

FWIW, there's also a parallel lsusb, part of (no surprise) usbutils. =8^)
