This feature does not exist because the way video cards [ATI] use VRAM is not as simple as the motherboard using RAM for example.

Such software does not exist as of today and I highly doubt it will in the future unless an architectural innovation is brought on.

Actually, if you're using ATI/AMD, then ATI Tray tools has a feature in the on screen display that lets you do this.

Although the process is complex, it is still possible to determine the amount of VRAM being used.

I believe nvidia cards have the feature in MSIAfterburner. Not sure about ATI though.
