Does anyone use any benchmarking software?

I just tried 3d mark 05. I was disappointed as my score seems low for my spec of PC. boo.

    you know you need a super duper home built computer, no 'power pc' brought from any company will do

    you need top ram - setting the timings yourself
    need 2 fast HDs hooked up in raid
    a high clockspeed processor (overclocked) with craploads of cache
    a new graphics card - overclocked
    qulity motherboard with good buses

    3dmark 2003se is the best for newer computers or 2001 if you want to compare to older cards

    on 2003 i get a few thousands but this was built for £350 - ex top of range parts like geforce 4200ti

    my mates computer is scary, he got raid, 1GB of decent ram, only 2.5GHz and geforce 6800gt overclocked to ultra speeds - scary shit!!!

    I got an appaling 1212 3dmarks. I think it had something to do with the fact I was downloading at the time, maybe :(
