I was wondering if any one knew of a program to use like hitting CTRL,ALT,DELETE for watching your system to watch more or the video card usage. I have two monitors and I leave task manager open on the top. I just like having speedometers.

what do you mean by "usage" ? memory ? load percentage? temperature?

Might be hard to find one that does all the things you want - do you want it to show performance graphs or just percentages? Task Manager isn't to bad is it, perhaps you could get a separtate small prgramme for temperatures. CoolMon 1.0 Final, CS Fire Monitor 1.6.3 and Process Explorer are some that I found that do most of those things but I haven't tried them. Process Explorer seems very similar to Task Manager. I think they are all free so try them.

One other thing, your motherboard/chipset manufacturer might have a programme that can do these, like companies such as Asus who my motherboard is made by.

You could use a bunch of multimeters. :)

Really thouh, I've not heard of something that can measure any useful data from a video card aside from the the temperature.
