Are there any countdown/timer and FPS display gadgets??

Hello..

I'm looking for 2 separate types of gadgets.

1. A timer/countdown gadget. I tried this one
Countdown Clock Gadget | Windows 7 Gadgets
and some other similar ones, but some don't work at all, others don't work for me. I don't need to enter specific date/time, I just want to say I want to be notified in 5 minutes.
The closest one I've found is this:
Windows Live Gallery
, but I'd prefer if I there were one with countdown

2. A FPS display gadget for my GPU

Not to sure on the first, but as for a FPS sidebar gadget, I don't think there is.

But, good old fashioned Fraps can do the trick. Download http://www.fraps.com/download.php

Or Evga Precision for Nvidia cards and Riva Tuner, i believe, works for ATI cards.

Riva Tuner download http://downloads.guru3d.com/RivaTune...nload-163.html

Evag Precision download http://www.evga.com/precision/

They are another two FPS programs

Yes, fraps could do the trick just fine..

I hope there's a decent countdown timer too sometime soon..

I had already tried all of them..

- One of them is a countdown to Windows 7 (not very useful now I suppose )
- The second doesn't seem to work with Windows 7 64-bit. I get the gadget on the side, but there is an X instead of the photo.
- The third doesn't do the trick, since you must enter a specific date and time..

I use this one:
Windows Live Gallery

Handy if you want to put a pizza in the oven or something. Even has a little alarm. It also lets you run two timers concurrently, for instance if you want one timer to count down to the overall time something should be in the oven for, and another to count down when you should flip whatever is in the oven. At least, that's how I use it.
