How do I check the temperature of my NVidia graphics card?

OK, so I need to keep track of the temperature of my graphics card. I used to know how to do this back before the UI got 'upgraded' (see attachment), but now... I'm at a total loss. I've looked for info on the NVidia site but no help. So can any of you give me a hand here?

I think with the newer drivers you have to download some additional tools from Nvidia to get a temp of the GPU .. Ntune ?
I use PC Wizard - which provides a lot of temperature info including the GPU ..

I'll have to get home tonight to check my Nvidia control panel to find out for sure about the driver based temp reading..

Will try PC Wizard, thanks.

Edit: OK, it worked just great, thanks!

It looks like you found a solution, but you might also try the native NVIDIA tool nTune:
