[CentOS] Memory Usage in Top and System Monitor

Can someone help clear up some confusion in reading memory usage in Top and System monitor. Here is a picture of both.

Why does "System Monitor" show 1.7gb free out of 8gb.  While Top shows all 8gb being used?
If 1.7gb is free then it should not be using swap space so I assume "System Monitor" is reporting it incorrectly?

Thanks
