    Question Searched the Archive and Stickies andgot litte answers. Preferred Benchmark Utility software?

    I have a decently designed system... I'm not a gamer and have until today just used onboard graphics.... but Ive always been much more interested in raw processing power.

    I noticed 3dMark,Passmark,and PCMark04 in all the stickies. I know most benchmark utilities are specialized to a specific component or subcomponent... but what would be my best bet for benchmarking my CPU/MB?

    I realize there are answers in the archives... but they appear to all be older than 4-5 years. Im looking for something more current.

    Any insight would be great. Im currently using SiSandra 2010 & upgrading to siSandra 2012 Pro as I type this.

    - Chris

    Postscript: As a frequenter of multiple specialty forums... I know asking questions that appear completely moronic to the regulars can be rritating and falming-worthy... but please know that I tried duing my due dilligence searching the archive and stickies first....and yes, Im new to the forum.

    For real world benchmarks, Futuremark's Vantage test suite is one of the best. Futuremark - PCMark Vantage
    AIDA64 | PC Benchmark | System Diagnostics | Network Inventory . and SiSoftware Zone are comprehensive test suites.

    Good to know... Im a member of some dog club boards and some of the old hags on there are B-R-U-T-A-L.
    They flame anyone that comes on the forum and doesn't already know everything they came to ask.

    I greatly appreciate the common courtesy a board like this provides and the help you in particular have given thus far.
