GPU usage monitor looking for task manager equivalent
Hey guys - I'm looking for a tool that will show the GPU usage - does such an animal exist? Apologies in advance for the newbie Q. I've been scanning around and occasionally posting - but now I'm going to get serious... ;)

I'm running a 6600 GT on 84.25 drivers with the PureVideo codec and the the Cyberlink AVC/AAC pack. Files are running OK (not all mp4s I've downloaded will actually run) but I'm still seeing some pretty high CPU usage on certain file types - and I'm dubious about whether the GPU is involved at all. That's why I'm looking for a monitor.

Thanks.

I don't know any of this type, but in waiting for it, maybe you could check the gpu temp to determine its usage ?

Guys, 5 years ago, the OP would have been happy to see all these responses... you're a bit late... heck even the post #5 was 2 years late. Lol this has been necroed a couple times now.
