How to get an OSD that shows GPU usage, etc. in game?

I have an ASUS graphics card and I tried using GPU Tweak III, but I can't seem to get it to display my FPS, GPU usage, clock speed, etc. while in game.

 

Can anyone recommend me a good OSD to download that will work? The more stats it has, the better.

If you use Nvidia gpu, give their performance overlay a try. I believe you can modify what you see but I may be mistaken. The key bind for it is alt+r. No need to download extra software if you already have it installed.

Nvidia has an overlay built in if you have Geforce Experience installed, and AMD has one with Radeon Adrenalin. Otherwise I've used the RivaTuner overlay in the past through MSI Afterburner, although I believe that's the same thing that ASUS' GPU Tweak uses, so if you're having trouble there you'd probably have trouble with MSI Afterburner as well.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Second vote for afterburner..not sure on the position of EVGA precision nowadays.  If it's still available i mean

 With all the Trolls, Try Hards, Noobs and Weirdos around here you'd think i'd find SOMEWHERE to fit in!

definitely afterburner or precision x1 (evga, discontinued afaik)

 

nvidia overlay is buggy as hell with phantasy numbers in my experience...

 

hwinfo64 can also be used with afterburner btw... so many stats you won't see anything else = )

As many people already posted, use the Driver Overlay and turn on monitoring, inside the driver, set it up to your liking.

This is the cleanest and surest way to get accurate readings.
