For the command line challenged try:

 1) Open up the "K Menu"
    - at the bottom left of the screen by default

 2) Select "run"

 3) Run "ksysguard"
    - i.e. type that in the run dialog

..also ONLY if you are running KDE you can normally press:

 * ctrl + alt + delete

..and you get a graphical top.
