Default Question about cpu/gpu monitoring programs

Hello. I was at a computer shop and I saw one of the computers had this cool program on the side of the monitor (like the desktop right side toolbar), the program displayed all 4 cores of the i7 in use, and showed their load and temp. I think there was something for the graphics card too. So my question is does anyone know any good programs that I can use to monitor my cpu/gpu, that are free, and I can just drag off to the side of my second monitor? Thanks.

What OS are you running? I've seen a bunch of different "gadgets" for Windows 7 that do what you described.

I use CoreTemp for cpu monitoring and GPUCapsViewer for my gpu

That's on windows at least and if you are on widnows, you could always go into task manager, click the performance tab

Look in Control Panel and find "Desktop Gadgets". Click on it. In the lower right corner of the box that pops up click on "Get more gadgets online". Look through the webpage full of gadgets that pops up and see if one suits your purposes.
