Program to graphically display system hogs

Is there a "neat" (ie., doesn't take a lot of cpu cycles), program out there that will graphically display the major processes that are processing and tieing up the system.

At times I am working on the system and it stalls for a few seconds (10 - 20 or so). I would like to have a little app that sits up on my screen that I could look at and see who the culprit is that is hogging the cpu.

Having a list of processes doesn't really show me.

I would like to have it just display (what I want)....like only the top three or four running at any time. Only display when thresholds are exceeded, have it display a little window when the thresholds are met and hide when the system is running normally, etc.

Thanks in Advance.

Bob

PS I have Anvir pro but I haven't seen where it would do this and it is big itself.

I have seen it before.... it looks like anvir (lots of numbers and graphics are not user definable (ie., they show everything and thus render easier isolation of problem programs harder to isolate).
No, I'll wait and see if there is anything else out there.
