Aida64, you gotta pay for it but you use the trial version to see the temps ad stuff and if your are convinced pay for the full retail software, im using it and i have my temps, all of them shown in the action bar also it gives me an option for a windows gadget as you want...
Otherwise if you dont to buy software, use GPU-Z it will tell you temps and all stuff you want to know about your GPU, but it doesnt come with a option to be shown as Win7 gadget..
I've always used MSI Afterburner for monitoring. You can detach the monitor window, which makes it a bit like a gadget. You can also have it show a monitor on the taskbar, or my favorite, in the Logitech LCD window on the G13 (or any other logitech device with an LCD)
So guys im soooooo HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!
just replaced my shitty Gt 520 for a Radeon HD6950
im just looking for a GPU meter that would show me the temparature of my GPU.
both doesnt support the Radeon 6000 series...
Hey I know why the GPU Meter isn't working follow these steps to get it to work
1.Download PC-Meter http://addgadgets.com/pc_meter/
2.Then make sure you have GPU Meter
3.Click the wrench beside the GPU Meter gadget on your desktop and a windows beside it pops up
4.On Select Method the first one open and it will be on Standalone but choose PC Meter*
5.Then under Select Graphics Adapter open the box and choose your graphic card!
This worked for my MSI Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 MD1GD5
