Benchmark Software

Just wondering if there are any 'free..ish' programmes which will inform you how you system is performing. Or any prog that you would suggest.

Many thanks

I aggree with the above, Futuremark 3DMark is probably the best

Try 3Dmark05 for overall benchmark (mainly graphics intensive)
Try 3Dmark01 for overall benchmark (mainly cpu intensive)

Both are free

With Futuremark you can use their ORB (online results browser) Just need to register i think. When you have run a test you can submit the score, from there you can setup you own ORB Cool

For your system you should be looking around 2000-2500 point mark in 3DMARK 05 at a guess!

When running 3DMark - turn off all programs i.e msn, web browser. Go into your graphics settings and make sure you dont have any AA / AF or VerticalSync on. Doing it this way will give you a more true system benchmark.

Have fun, and if overclocking your 9800pro, go easy on it!!

There are a ton of benchmarks for specific hardware.

Such as Super Pi for Memory
Hd Tach for Hard Drives
FutureMark 3Dmarks are now mainly GPU based where as the 3DMark01 is often seen as a whole computer hardware benchmark.
Aquamark was a good one, but sadly its gone now
CD/DVD Tach the name says it all
You also have Lavalys Everest that monitors temperatures, gives alot of info on your PC spec and also has a couple of memory benchmarks

Thats all the ones I have used.
