    Thumbs up GPU Monitor for the Tweakers

    Stumbled upon this little gadget the other day and thought it was worth sharing. It's for the Windows Vista/7 sidebar and allows you to monitor pretty much everything on your rig. GPU, CPU, memory, FPS, temps etc... Great if you like to tweak and monitor the stats of your hardware. It does require the Rivatuner app to be running in the background with the monitoring service running.

    Could come in handy. I think I'll look at getting this thing once I get my copy of windows 7. Good find LAN :-)

    Interesting... any word on how much overhead is incurred by using the sidebar and gadgets?

    In Vista the sidebar was horrible. In Windows 7 I don't even know it's running. I have 4 apps running in it now, and it's barely noticeable in a process monitor. Keep in mind though, it's not always the sidebar either. Some apps are just badly written and will hog CPU/memory.

    Ok - we had a forced "upgrade" to vista at work, and they had a clock, weather bug, calendar, and cpu/memory monitor running on the sidebar and it was a hog. That's why I've stayed away from it so far on windows 7 at home.

    Thanks for the info.
