Yes there are many applications that can display this kind of information:

torsmo seems to be very popular now and so are gdesklets.

If you use KDE, you can install karamba and get cynapses from kde-apps.org Give's system info, cpu load graph, memory load, Disk usage, all that good stuff... Plus you can modify a karamba config file to include programs like xmms.
