Is there a software from XFX to monitor the graphics card temps/fan speeds/etc, like MSI's afterburner utility? Can I use another software/utility to monitor a XFX GT 240 card?

I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

MSI Afterburner can be used for other card manufactures beyond MSI. It is one of the best tools out there.

You can also use GPU-Z. It is a very simple tool that can monitor all the vitals of your video card.

can i control the fan of an XFX card with the MSI utility? – hwp08 Nov 9 '10 at 17:32
@zm15 Yes, the only reason it might not work is if your card happen to have a non-smart fan. Try out afterburner and let us know how it goes. – Troggy Nov 9 '10 at 17:36

Check out GPU-Z.
