Default how can u tell temps of ur vga

I installed a new heatsink fan for my radeon 9800 pro 256mb.

In order to tell if it's working or not i want to know the temps for
it and i have no idea how to do that.

Is there a program to get the temps of your vga or do you have
to do it manually??

There should be a temperature display in your video settings. Right click on your desktop -> Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> The tab with your video card name on it -> Then in this menu system look for a temperature display.
