SQLcheck is an interesting (and FREE) Performance Monitor for SQL Server.

With this tool, you can investigates, organizes and explains critical information about your server’s hardware, operating system and SQL Server. With SQLcheck's performance dashboard, you can quickly view detailed explanations and receive recovery suggestions.
