Ok, I'm back. I could find nothing other than the built in FPS command and a reference that Neverwinter nights uses OpenGL.

Here's an openGL benchmark program (it looks old though, and you could probably find better ones out there):

You might also consider Dungeon Siege as an alternative if you can't get anything going with Neverwinter...


It seems like everything's either DirectX or OpenGL. Quake3 uses OpenGL, and UT2K3 uses DirectX 8... both have great benchmarks built in and it would make sense to use them. I'll take a look at what NWN has to offer -- if nothing else, it looks like a fun game.

Anyone know what racing games and slight/space sims would use? Are there any other factors worth considering, are there any other things that you'd need to know about a motherboard when considering it for a gaming rig?
