    Question Benchmarking tools

    Hey peeps,

    Right I am going to be configuring my new system sometime this week (when I am completely not sure) but I wanted to know which proggies you peeps suggest to get benchmarks out of this new hardware.

    Basically the whole system is brand new and I want to get benchies of practically everything that I am putting in it: CPU, GFX, RAM, HD, MOBO etc etc

    Can you guys give me any ideas?I know about PiFast but apart from that nothing much else

    Ta in advance peeps

    Ummm are we forgetting about PiFast? I think PC Mark is a waste not as bad as 3dMark2003.

    Sisoft, 3dMark2001 and PiFast

    PiFast is great for testing stability too as you overclock. I usually have problems with it 1st.

    Fair enough guys. I shall be posting benchmarks more for my own good more than anything else considering I'm going from an Athlon AXIA 1.4ghz on an Abit KT7A to a 2500+ Barton on a DFI nForce2 board.

    However the AXIA & KT7A are gunna be used in my ultasparc project so they won't be retired just yet )
