check pc specs from another computer

hi, is there a way to check pc specs (specifically kind of motherboard or at least model number of pc) from another computer? I am home for the holidays and would like to take advantage of the competitive pricing here as opposed to where I go to college. This is a Dell Optiplex that I have modded to be a gaming pc, and would like to update the CPU, but did not have a chance to write down the model number or type of socket that the motherboard supports before I left it for the holidays.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Something like HWinfo should work, you don’t really need to use another PC
