I can't pass a benchmark without trying it out, and this one's quite quick and extensive. Instructions: 1) Open IE (not FF or other browser because of the ActiveX) 2) Go to www.pcpitstop.com 3) Click on "Full Test" near the top left of the screen. 4) Register (it's free). 5) Click on "Test this System" 6) Follow the rest of the instructions... not much left... What is cool is that when you register you have an account and any test results will be saved and you can access them anytime. You can save test results of up to 10 pc's. The test measures CPU, RAM, 2D Video, 3D Video, Hard-Drive Speed and Internet Speed. It gives you an itemised score for each component, the total score (the higher the better), and also the 'world ranking' which is cool too. Apart from that, but which is irrelevant for benchmark purposes, you can also click the tabs which show you if your drivers are ok, list of hardware, result of virus-scan, bho's etc etc... Take a screenshot of the "rankings" tab and post it here. List your system specs if they are not in the system specs under your avatar. If response is good I might make a table listing the scores, highest first. Here's the screenshot of my desktop: Specs: CPU -- E4300 @ 3.0Ghz GPU -- 8800GT BFG OC2 @ stock Mobo -- Asus P5B RAM -- 2GB @ 833Mhz 5-5-5-15 And the screenshot of laptop in system specs: SCORE RANKINGS AS ON 14th OCT 2008: Meh if someone knows how to put the scores neatly please tell me!!!
