Default Best PC Benchmarking software

Out of all those, which one do you run more often? I'm going to measure my PC's performance to see how I stack up to people.

Oh, I should post some links for those listed up there in the polls:

PassMark
http://www.passmark.com/products/pt.htm

FutureMark (3dMark/PCMark)
http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

SiSoftware (SiSoft Sandra)
http://www.sisoftware.net/index.html...=sware_dl_3264

I had no idea that SiSoft is a UK site, lol.

I haven't run a benchmarking program since 3DMark2000. I really don't see a need too other then for bragging rights. My bench mark is the games I play and the apps I use. As long as they play and run fine at optimal settings, that's all that counts.

I use 3dMark 05 and PCMark 05. They both do a good enough job for me.

I want to see just how much of a performance gain I'm getting with the new CPU and RAM upgrade I did recently. It certainly feels fast, but I don't expect to get huge numbers because it still is an older system--technically.

Use Everest to bench your hardware such as ram and your cpu. Then use 3dMark06 to bench your GPU.

I like 3DMark, since gaming performance is more important to me.
