Is your PC custom built? Most motherboards come with monitoring software on a CD. Asus, for example, comes with it.

oh by the way, you can also go to Start > Control Panel > Admin Tools > Performance. It will give you stats on cpu, memory, disk usage

Which OS are you using Vista or XP? There are some Sidebar gadgets in Vista that you can download that give you real time performance monitoring.

Cin. Oh.
If it's an older pc, motherboard monitor. If it's an nvidia mobo, they have their own, available at nvidia. You can also download powertoys from Microsoft. Good luck

remember that depending on how old your motherboard is some of the sensors may not be there. so you may or may not get all the readings you want.

For a quick and dirty performance utility:
If you're using Windows, press CTRL-SHIFT-ESC simultaneously.
This will bring up the task manager.

I'm running XP pro on Gateway M675 Laptop it's around 5 years old and still kicking. I know about all the built in tools. I just wanted something that could seat on the desk top. I'll look around...
