Is there any program I can use to take the temperature of my graphics card?

Regards..

NO. Temperature cannot be measured by software alone. There must be a physical measuring device, either electrical or mechanical.

Try a thermometer.

Well, it depends.

If your graphics card has a built in thermocouple (as many of them do) then yes, it is possible to measure the temperature using software, just as you can measure the temp of your CPU, Motherboard etc - do a search on the net to find out if your card has the hardware required and software available to do this.

The ATI Radeon in one of my work PC's has a built in thermocouple, and I got a utility program along with it to query it's temperature. I can also query it by probing the hardware directly through some code.

If your card is so equipped you most likely have the software on the CD that came with the card.
