Rookie question, but: where can I get the benchmarking tests like 3dmark05 often mentioned in the Forums? I'd like to see the scores for my new rig.

Thanks for the references. I now recall SiSandra being mentioned a few months ago, but couldn't remember the name. Thanks again.

Cool. I'll try Aquamark as well. Thanks EmilyB.

FWIW, I downloaded the free version of 3DMark05 and the rig in my sig scored 4741. From the brief scouting of posting sites online, it appears this is a pretty sweet score.

The tests barely budged my temps either. I think this is a good sign as well. Maybe I put it together OK after all. :wink:

But you were probably a lot more judicious in your spending! :)
