How can I be informed through my computer if a new SMS is received?

I have the LG Optimus One p500. It comes with LG PC Suite IV which is great. It allows me to download my sms messages to/from the computer fine.

However I must manually check if there are new messages.

Is there any program (for windows) which can listen for sms messages in android and download them to the computer automatically then alert you?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There's Android notifier and SMS2PC. PDANet will also do it, along with tethering.

+1 for android notifier, although I would like a true "Growl for Android" that can forward to a PC/Mac running Growl and receive from other Growl clients. – Ryan Conrad Mar 2 '11 at 23:27
actually, I want to give android notifier another +1 because it looks like they implemented Growl Notification Protocol... – Ryan Conrad Mar 3 '11 at 0:11

There's also gtalksms which will send any SMS messages back out through Google Talk. I registered an extra Gmail account for the phone to use and it just sends them to me in the normal chat client I use on my PC.
