Video RAM Usage

How do I check how much video RAM is being used? I have a GTX 460 1GB and I'm not sure if the games I'm playing are utilizing the GPU RAM.

dont worry they are.............

if you use the on screen display with MSI afterburner you can monitor you video usage ingame

some games use more ram than others and utilising anti alaising , anisotropic filtering , transparency aa and ambiant occlusion help to eat up that 1GB

if your ram wasnt being utilised your games would stutter and skip and be unplayable
