Post nTune vs RivaTuner

Which one is better? I'm asking for comments because I want to use one of them for hardware monitoring.

RivaTuner is better, it can log all outputs, its much more configurable then ntune, it can be a little complictaed though at first.

Ntune never seemed to work to good, the video card part of it worked ok but was lacking compared to RivaTuner.

If you want as much data as to what is happening with your graphics card at all times then RivaTuner.

Yep, you can also mark peak temps and I think enable certain hacks for IQ and tweaking not available elsewhere.

RivaTuner > All IMHO
For power users, RivaTuner ftw.

I started using it ever since i had to use it to unlock pipelines on my 6800 non ultra. Haven't looked back since.
