    You're asking for the impossible. Any benchmark that claims to be able to give you individual results for all primary system components is either a fraud or something to stay away from. The only way to get good benchmark results from your system is to test it with several programs/utilities that specifically test a certain feature. Examples are the 3DMark series that are very dependent on graphics cards. SuperPI is a good utility that tests pure number crunching power of the processor. Modern games allow you to test the system as a whole to see how well it performs. There are countless tests you can do so it is usually best to figure out what you want your system to be good at and test accordingly.

    Well you could test things such as, FPU/ALU/GPU performance, test cache hit/miss rate, cache speeds, and memory access times with different patterns to isolate components. But I'm not very familiar with doing this on x86 architectures.
