If you want something hardcore try Orthos.
Prime95 is good too.

Of course if you want to test the vid card as well, use 3dmark or by itself use ATItool's artifact scan.

Prime95, use the torture test:

Your motherboard should come with temperature monitoring software. If not, use SpeedFan:

Yeah, the tools that come with the mobo are typically more accurate than anything else.

Orthos / Prime95 for stress testing.

CoreTemp for temps, as well as Speedfan.

If you are using Linux, like me, then get gkrellm and lmsensors.

There is no better stress test than Folding@Home. You're system can be stable all day running Prime95, yet F@H may crash multiple times.

Here's a guide showing you how to set it up: http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=558843

I agree.

You cant beat this for a stress test on your set up and F@H now have a client that will heavily stress you GPU too.
