How can I tell how much cache my most demanding
program uses? (the new TX chipsets are limited
to 64megs)
This question *IS* worth more points, but its all
I have right now.

I think you need to rephrase your question.
which cache are you taalking about? should it be 64k?

any real activity is going to max out your cache real quick. thats what its intended for so if you are running any heavy apps it will be almost constantly in use and probably filled.

"No L2 cache support of more than 64 MB RAM"
This is what I read in a motherboard review w/the new
TX chipset.

the Motherboard has a cache of whatever size (512k is a normal size). this is used to swap program info in and out of ram and is being used constantly as long as you are doing something. The 64MB referred to means that your motherboard will not allow you to use more than 64meg of ram on it. you may be able to add more than that but it wont be recognized or used.
to use up 64meg of ram you will have to have perhaps dozens of programs running at the same time.
