Util across one card or all?

Does FICO count util on each card or overall? I have two with a total 1k limit and plan on only leaving a $19 balance on one.. My high balance one will be paid off :smileyhappy:

Starting Score: 492 02/12
Current Score: TU: 668 (FICO), EQ: 668 (FICO). EX: 651(lender pull 9/27/12)
Goal Score: 660

Wish it was that simple.  Total util is key factor.   However individual cards util figure into score.  Also small ding for each account with any balance.

Yeah.  Ideal is 1-9% of both card and total limit utilization and rest of cards reporting 0 balance.
