I am looking for some extension which will display all system information such as CPU usage, temperature, internet usage, running processes etc. I would like to see all of the output continuously updated on my desktop. I run ubuntu 12.04 64-bit with Gnome3

I know there are Gnome3 extensions, but most of them (at least what I checked) display only some information on the bar. I am looking for complete set of possible informations and displaying them as a desktop background

Does anyone know something like that?
