Use the nVidia montior option to watch your GPU temp

you should be able to just right click on your desktop and go to the nVidia Control Panel, then click on the thing that says Monitor Temperature levels


coretemp is just for the cpu, as far as I can tell w/ mine atleast

The bottom number in ATI Tool seems to be the card's temperature, and the top number seems to be the core temperature. So it looks like it's agreeing with the other two programs, if what I said about those two numbers in ATI Tool, is correct.

nTune is great. Just don't use it to overclock your CPU, RAM or motherboard. I use nTune and RivaTuner to monitor GPU temps.

I use Rivatuner, ATITool, and Everest to monitor mine. All 3 agree with each other.
