    So, while I was playing with the No Limits coaster simulator demo... I thought that I would run the Activity Monitor and see how much Graphics Memory was being allocated toward the game... It was only 86 MB!!! I thought that the X3100, which is what I have, was supposed to have a minimum of 144mb..?? No Limits is a graphically intense game. I also have 2 GB of memory installed.

    Activity Monitor does not track the system RAM usage of the GMA X3100.

    Its showing the RAM useage of the game application itself not the GMA's allotted VRAM

    oh, my bad then, i didn't know that the Activity Monitor only showed system memory usage.... not VRAM usage. Is there any way to monitor the amount of VRAM being applied, like the Activity Monitor, during a certain applications...??
