You should check this out! I have not posted here in a while but I had to share this seriously sweet find!!! I did a search in the forums here but I did not see anything about HWiNFO64.

Anybody else using this?

I recently came across this awesome piece of software that any gamer or overClocker wanting to monitor their system would dig. It is doubly goodness when paired with AfterBurner.

I was having problems playing Mass Effect 1 on my system and I thought it might have been a memory leak. It would run fine for about an hour and 15 mins. then the audio would start to crack along with stuttering. It would get progressively worse until it would ultimately crash. I wanted to check how my memory was being utilized (system and GPU). It was kind of a hemorrhoid to check while playing, like having to setup logs and such.

Then I found HWiNFO64 http://www.hwinfo.com/index.html. It will give you info on everything, but I loved it because I could check CPU, GPU, and Memory usage. All at the same time. And when you pair it with Afterburner's on-screen display you can compare in real time what is going on while gaming right beside your FPS. Everything HWiNFO64 can monitor can be shown on-screen via AfterBurner, which is pretty much anything you can think of. It is also fairly simple to use once you get the gist of it all.

The best part is this is free!!! :cool:

It looks good--kind of a combination of several utilities I use such as CPU-Z, GPU-Z, and HWMonitor. Thanks for the heads-up!
