Default Hardware monitor for Graphics card

Hi guys,

Is there a program other than Rivatuner that I can use to monitor my GPU temp, whether it displays the temp in-game like Rivatuner, or at least is able to record it so that I can view it after I'm finished playing? It's just that I'm OC my GPU, and would like to see what temp it gets up to. There are no artifacts, but I'd like to know anyway. And before someone recommends Rivatuner, I cannot use it because it doesn't support my version of Forceware, and my card won't run on anything below Forceware 83.40. Cheers

Got it from Overclockers UK

Very expensive, but it's got to be the ultimate AGP card out now!

Yes, but I still need a program to log the temps, because 3DMark is a fullscreen program, and as such I can't see the temps while under load. My GPU cools down from max temp to idle temp in about 5 secs, so I would never get a max temp reading if I ctrl-alt-del back to Windows out of one of the apps! But never mind, that NvTempLogger program works just fine, Cheers
