The performance and reliability monitor tool comes pre-installed in all version of windows that support it. (Unless you've elected to leave it out of your particular installation).
Versions of windows that have it build in are Windows 7 and Windows server 2008.

To activate the tool, go to "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Performance Monitor".
This will give you a screen like this: (attached)
 Performance Monitor
You can add monitoring of individual components of your system from CPU, to memory, disk performance and even .NET and HTTP services.

Hope this helps somewhat.

ok, for that particular piece of information you need to go to the main Performace and Reliabiliity Monitor Overview page (image attached).

When you expand the "Memory" section you can see the memory that individual processes are consuming.
