you can pipe the output of ps and sort the column of memory depending on the requirement.

ps aux | sort -r -k4

It would be useful if you could specify your OS (e.g. Ubuntu 12.04) and system(e.g. desktop/server) to help identify potential tools. For instance I can run 'gnome-system-monitor' which gives me a GUI display where I can sort by any of user, cpu, memory and other fields.
