Default Graphic card monitoring

How can I monitor the usage of the graphics card. My company produces a program and I need to see if the programmer is using the graphics card to do his drawings instead of the cpu. We have two programs. The first is very cpu intensive and the other program is a graphical interface. We use a AGP nVidia 6200 and a PCIx-16 6800. We are thinking of upgrading but I just wonder if the programmer should be making more calls to the graphics card to do the drawing. Mainly the second program is not very comlicated. Just drawing a few colored lines. I wonder because my computer at home can twiddle it's thumb and play games better and quicker than the second program but that is because the games seem to utilizes the graphics card better. I need to be able to check exactly how much the card is being used.

Thanks for any help.
