I've set up an old computer to use as a home FTP server. This of course means that it will be on 24/7. I was wondering of there was a readout device that I could plug into the computer so I'd just be able to read the numbers shown to see the temperature of the computer, or the CPU/RAM usage. Basically, a device I could plug in so that, instead of having to reconnect the computer to the only monitor (aka TV) in my secondary house and look at speccy, I could just look at the device and see the temperature or RAM usage right then and there. I know it might not be exactly necessary, but I'd rather constantly know the temperature of the computer.


EDIT: I've found something that fits exactly what i'm looking for. A picoLCD, combined with the AIDA64. The only problem is that the picoLCD I found costs $50. Preferably I would rather not pay that much for a status readout, but i might have to if I don't find a better option.


EDIT 2: Found this. It's cheaper, has a better aspect ratio, and is in color.
