Well I can assure you X is you memory on the gfx card if it is working
properly  ^_^

Hmm, not aware of any commands to test what it's memory is, but you
can check the logs for what the cards memory address and the like
are... those should give a good idea of about what it has on it...
also it should say during boot time...

If you want to know just what the screen is using, just take
3*<width>*<hight>(note: this assumes 24bit per pixel) and this will
give you the number of bytes the screen it self is using.
