Thread Starter 
Hello, I've got a new build (switching from AMD smile.gif) and I would like to monitor the cpu and video card with some digital hardware. If you have any reccomendations please advise. I will be overclocking as soon as I get the cpu cooler. My main task with this computer is producing and gaming.

My new build is:

Antec900,
Corsair TX 750,
Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H,
Intel i7 3770k,
Corsair XMS3 8gb,
EVGA GTX 660,
Intel SSD 160gb,
Seagate 500gb

Sorry, let me be more specific, What I was actually talking about was something like a digital thermometer with lcd screens, some kinda software for an LCD screen which displays that reading. I know there's something like it but I'm having trouble finding.

Try this. There are temperature sensors that you can tape to anywhere in your case. You can even tape one down to your CPU if you can. However, HWMonitor will give you a more accurate reading. Monitors like these are usually just for eyecandy. I would recommend HWMonitor for OCing IMO.

See on the other hand I've heard that hardware monitor like the one you've listed above will give you a more accurate reading. The temperature in my cpu room varies, this is another reason I thought having something like that could benefit and that way I could make sure it doesn't exceed normal temps. Thanks for chimin in, maybe I'll just save a few bucks.
