Is there a computer that will measure the actual grade of a hill your riding up ? like a 30 or 40 degree hill for what ever distance.

Yeah, the Garmin 305 Edge will do it. I know there's another that'll do it too and not sure about Garmin eTrex Legend.
Blackburn Delphi 6.0. ~$160-150.
A spendier option would be the Polar CS400, but for the price of that, you should just get a Garmin 305 and have GPS tracking.

Avocet and Ciclosport also have models that do that.

The VDO MC 1.0+ also does gradient..

Here's an analog version:
