Actually nick, it's right there. It should be the middle of the 3 temperatures.

go to "settings" and in the menu, click "temperature monitoring"
then check "measure card temperature"

If it doesn't work, then it's more than likely your card doesn't have a temperature gague

*edit*
here's ATI Tool on my PC:

with my 8800 GTS 320MB sitting at 47ºC, after a recent game of C&C 3 on max settings, except with 2X AA

7900 GS. They're about the same in performance at stock, but the 7900 GS is cheaper.

But the 7900 GS is also much more overclockable (especially with a voltmod)
And one thing about ATI's HD series GPU's is that they get a significant decrease in performance with AA and AF, compared to other video cards.

Because
1. his card doesn't support different clock speed for 2D, 3D low power, and 3D. It's just one speed all the time.
2. his card doesn't have a temperature gague
