Whats the best benchmark test?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm totally ignorant about benchmark testing. Based on my system specs what would be the best tester for me to download and use? At this point I only run Microsoft Fight Simulator 2004 and G-max for graphics intensive applications. I don't want to download and istall some tester that doesn't recognize, or is not compatible with these applications.

TIA
My System

The most popular Benchmark tools are:

Aquamark3
3D Mark 2001Se
3D Mark 03
3D Mark 05

PC Mark04 / 05

These are independant tools that can be run and then compare the results with others - see the Benchmark Threads in this section.

Also use them to see the impact of a system change or OC.

There are many places to down load them from.

There is a .dll for AQM3 that should be installed as well
