I have an eVGA 7800GTX KO and in Everest it shows the GPU temps, it also shows the temps in the NVIDIA Display window where all your GFX card settings are, I think you might have to have Coolbits installed to get the temp tab thou.

Your system BIOS has nothing to do with your graphics card, atleast mine has nothing for my GFX card in it. And I beleive SMART is only used on hard drives, and has nothing to do with a graphics card.

maybe he's in an alternate universe where the laws of physics dont apply.

and yeah SMART is for hard drives and like Tro said, nothing withint your computers BIOS would be based for your graphics card except for PCI-E or AGP frequency and sometimes voltage

yeah that's true, aperture is about the closest you'd get to a direct link between video card and system performence, but even then it's not phenominal
