I need a Powershell script to save the output of get-process to a text file.  It should have the following columns:  ProcessName, WS and CPU.  I tried this command:

get-process | sort-object WS -descending | select ProcessName, WS, CPU | add-content c:\temp\procmem.txt

It produced the following output:

@{ProcessName=iexplore; WS=378351616; CPU=134.6756633}
@{ProcessName=iexplore; WS=216297472; CPU=47.2527029}
@{ProcessName=OUTLOOK; WS=142602240; CPU=139.2620927}
...

I need it to look like this:

ProcessName           WS                        CPU
iexplore                      378351616         134.6756633
iexplore                      216297472         47.2527029
OUTLOOK                  142602240         139.2620927
