mmm, i just want to know a program that monitors my gpu usage, what's a nice one.

You can use http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ to view the gpu load (under the sensor tab).

Hello all, this is my first post here :) so hi all.

 

I am about to change my pc, because i found out that when i run my stuff, my CPU is always running 100%, so a other processor could be a improvement.

because it runs att 100%, I think my graphic card is not running full speed, else probebly my cpu had to wait on it, what it deafently is nor doing. but... how can i see what my graphic card is realy doing, so i know if i have to change it, or just take it to my new system?

 

thanks for the help

 

Greetings

It should not be running at 100%.

 

I would recommend a Virus and Malware scan before you do anything.

Compatible with Windows 95

because it runs at 100%, I think my graphic card is not running full speed, else probably my cpu had to wait on it, what it definitely is nor doing. but... how can i see what my graphic card is really doing, so i know if i have to change it, or just take it to my new system?

First of all welcome to the Linustechtips forum :)

 

Regarding your PC, did you buy it from a PC outlet store? or assemble it yourself?

You've informed us that the CPU is running balls to the wall 100%, is this when you're playing games/browsing the internet/playing games?.

 

Please share your computer specs if possible.

Please become a member of the Linus Tech Tips forum, keep writing smug remarks & let us love you. Peace out.

@wng_kingsley7, @tomlambert01

okej, sorry, i forgot to tell it was running 100% when i was rendering my photo's (i am a photographer)

oh, and sorry if i not awnsered fast enough, i am not used to see forums awnsering so fast, most of the time it takes a day on the other forums i tryed before to get a awnser.

 

So, thanks all for the help, Here is my partpickerlink: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/C9KCCJ
