Windows 7: Monitor GPU usage in perfmon, GPU counter for perfmon

Monitor GPU usage in perfmon, GPU counter for perfmon

Hello, I am new here and this is my first post. Thank you for your time and helping me out!

My question is as this. Is it possible to monitor my GPU usage true perfmon? I can monitor CPU, HDD and RAM in perfmon but there are no counters for GPUs. How do I get counters for my GPU so that I can monitor my GPU usage. At the moment I monitor my GPU with Process Explorer. But I want to monitor it all in one window (thus perfmon).

This is my system:
MOMO: MSI Bing Bang X Power II
CPU: Intel Core i7 3820
RAM: 16 GB Corsair DDDR-1600 (2 x 8 GB) (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)
HDD: Western Digital WD2002FYPS (2 TB)
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200 (4 GB)

Thank you for your time and I hope you have a solution,
Richard Moti

Hello RichardMoti and welcome to Sevenforums. What brand card do you have? Most manufacturers have a utility that will monitor your card on screen while you are playing. They also have other functions as well. If your manufacturer does not have one, many people like MSI Afterburner. It is an overclocking utility, but has very good monitoring stats. Most manufacturers have their own. I have an EVGA card and use Precision X, Sapphire has Trixx and most others do as well.

You can keep a log of almost every statistic there is with GPUz. This will tell you how Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose

First of all - hi! I'm new to the forum. In windows XP perfmon asked every time I wanted to close it if it should save the settings / session. In Windows 7 it says nothing and I see no way to save all the counters I've set up. There is an option to Save Settings but I see no option to load...
