Default Need a program that shows accurate amount of ram being taken up.

I need a program that shows accurate amount of ram being taken up and by which process.

I've been using procexp but I haven't figured out which number is the real number and there's no total.

Obviously I've been using task manager too but the process list doesn't total up to what the PF usage is.

I've always relied on task manager but sometimes certain games like America's Army will say it takes up 250 MB, but when I check my PF usage it's at 530 mb and i'm starting at a boot up of 100 MB (with no spyware or useless processes loaded), so I could really use a program that tells me what that extra 200 mb of ram is being taken up by.

Your OS takes a lot of it. If you have Intel hardware, go to their site and download their desktop control center which tells you how much meory and CPU is used in real time.

My gaming machine:

P4 2.8 GHz
2 X 512 MHz PC3200 in dual DDR mode
integrated 6.1 MAX audio
Logitech duo MX mouse and KB
