Is There Another Way To Monitor RAM?

I have 1GB of RAM. I have noticed once that my memory is incredibly low and when looked at Task Manager's memory monitor i saw that all applications that were running were taking less than 200MB. The question is - what else ate the rest of RAM. You see, the problem with Task Manager's memory monitor is that it only shows applications' memory, but doesn't show all of the other stuff that takes memory. Is there a way to see what other stuff eats memory besides applications?

Here is a program I found... RAM Monitor 1.0 I have never used it, I used to use something else when XP was my primary that showed total RAM available, and the total amount used that did a great job, but I can't remember FOR THE LIFE OF ME what it's name was.

Also, techsupportalert.com is a website that has tons of freeware reviews. It is also commonly known as "Gizmos Freeware". Try these reviews out... Gizmo's Best Resource Meters

Simply google things like "Ram Monitor for XP" or "System Monitor", etc. and see what you come up with. Some will be good, some won't.

Hope that helps. :)
