Windows 7: Benchmark Question

Benchmark Question

I'm about to go from 4GB to 8GB RAM and was wondering what benchmarking tools the community recommends?

Also going to OC my CPU from stock 3.4Ghz to >3.8Ghz...

I know Prime95 is for CPU benchmarking, should I just stick with PCMark 05?

Appreciate the responses...

Prime95 is for CPU torture testing, don't know about benchmarking.
