Conky System Monitor
Conky is an advanced, highly configurable system monitor for X based on torsmo. It looks very nice on the desktop. Works with LINUX/BSD/UNIX-like OSes. You can find all the information you need on their site http://conky.sourceforge.net/

After installing the necessary packages for your distribution all you need to do is to provide a configuration file (.conkyrc) in your home directory. You can either write one yourself using the variables provided here Conky Variables and the config file settings found here Config File Settings or use a configuration file you found on the web.

Here are some screenshots of mine running and the configuration file i use.
