MSI Afterburner for sure, works great, use the settings to switch between the two cards..

Well I use AIDA64 and it can read temps from two different cards. I had it reading temps from both a 8800GT and 460 at the same time.

Also it will give me GPU Core and Vcc voltage, GPU temp, GPU ambient temp and GPU memory temp. Really it will give you as much info as the card can provide.

I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned, but GPU-Z is great and entirely free.

i tried and dont see setting but it already displays both temperatures...

again 40'c loading for gpu1 temperature seems not right... especially 36'c for gpu2... :?

jd, i know about gpu-z but i need close accuracy temperature monitor for hd 6x's...
