Is there a database of PCI devices?

When I cat /proc/pci, I get a list of the devices in my computer, and it
is almost but not quite helpful. In particular, I get:

Bus 1, device 0, function 0:
VGA compatible controller: NVidia Unknown device (rev 4).
Vendor id=10de. Device id=20.
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. IRQ 11. Master
Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=5.Max Lat=1.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe1000000 [0xe1000000].
Prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe3000000 [0xe3000008].

Is there a database somewhere where I can look up what the device ID=20
means? Clearly, its an NVidia VGA card, but which one?

Many thanks,
