For hard disk usage, use df. For RAM, free.

I like to use:

$ df -H
$ free -m

Which gives you the size of the partitions in human readable format and the memory in MB

gkrellm shows the used and free RAM both graphically and in words.
Also shows a choice of other handy monitors.

Since I put gkrellm on my desktop (it's the ONLY thing on my desktop) I don't know how I ever managed without it.
