    EVGA released an update for its Precision graphics card overclocking and monitoring software. Version 1.9.0 of EVGA Precision introduces a number of important changes compared to its older version, including performance and stability fixes related to the application's OSD features, a number of user interface (UI) related changes, and changes to the skin engine which reduces memory footprint.

    DOWNLOAD: EVGA Precision 1.9.0 (for registered EVGA users)
    Changes listed by EVGA are as follows:

    • Fixed 3D memory clock monitoring on NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 DDR5 series graphics cards
    • Added configuration file setting allowing power users to display performance profiler status information in the hardware monitor window. The information allows estimating average CPU performance hit caused by hardware monitor
    • On-Screen Display and Logitech LCD monitoring modules no longer explicitly read displayed data from hardware and retrieve cached data from monitoring graphs instead. Due to this change CPU performance hit is reduced when OSD or LCD monitoring features are enabled
    • Fan speed slider position and numeric fan speed input field are now being refreshed in automatic fan speed mode only when EVGA Precision window is active
    • Added configuration file switches allowing power users to tweak Precision startup process and define startup delay or force the startup to be handled by Windows Vista / Windows 7 Task Scheduler to bypass UAC evaluation window (additional Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 runtime libraries installation is required for task scheduler based startup way)
    • Added videomemory usage monitoring for NVIDIA graphics cards under Forceware 185.xx and newer drivers
    • Added GPU usage monitoring for NVIDIA GT2xx and newer graphics cards under Forceware 185.xx and newer drivers
    • EVGA On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 3.6.0. New server provides improved desktop windows notification mechanism and also features optional power user oriented task scheduler based startup way
    • Reduced runtime skin engine memory footprint due to dynamic skin storage unloading

    I am using after burner just now and its okay but i just might go back to EVGA Precision because its nothing different to each other. This update just added a few new stuff too so that is a reason to go back.

    The OSD can be changed to display whatever you want! So i see no problems there.
