RTSS.exe is a part of the monitoring/over-clocking app. EVGA-Precision-1.3.3
In my computer it works in conjunction with MSI Afterburner 2.1
This is the system performance monitor of Riva Tuner, it gathers system temperatures, voltages and fan speeds to display and alter them within Rita Tuner and it derivatives.

MSI Afterburner-related - this handles the on-screen display for framerate/etc.
  Wireball   (further information)
RivaTuner Statistics Server, sometimes installed as part of MSI Afterburner for sensor readings and on-screen display. At worst, it might take up some CPU time and hassle Windows Aero when you aren't playing a game.
