On my work computer (Win7 x64, 16GB RAM), I have two low-end video cards powering four monitors. What happens is that something causes a spike in video ram usage which causes my default color to change (desktop composition is auto-disabled by windows). I have no idea where this spike comes from. Is there a way to determine what is chewing up my memory usage??
