Default Just installed new GTX 260, what program to control fan and monitor temp?

Hi guys, just got a new GTX 260 from Palit installed. Wondering what program I should use to monitor temp and fanspeed. I used to use evga precision, will that be compatible with this card?

Thanks

Rivatuner has worked well for me:

I prefer EVGA Precision. It's basically Rivatuner without the useless features and with a much better interface.
