Windows 7: What's a Good Bench Mark Program

What's a Good Bench Mark Program

What is a good Bench mark program to bench mark my PCs overall performance?

I think my Pooter runs slow? I say "think" because I am not really sure. I see some web pages load slow but when I do a speed test it say I have good download speed, I know that it could be the PC on the other end as some web pages zip but how do I know for sure? I see some apps. work slow or stutter at certain points but perhaps it is a in it's a part of it's operation where it works the hardest.

I am talking about performance after a clean install, I think I have a good entry level enthusiast component (Check my System Spec) so either I need to do a bench mark to get a reference or I have faulty stuff in my case that I need to replace.

I ran PC Vantage free and got a score of 11668, find below some screen shots of the results, the first seem to have me pitted against Corsair Labs with a Gulftown 980X, the next pic is the highest scores when I search the ORB and the last pic is a few pages down with a red line where I would place if I was included in this list with a paid version of PC Vantage. I am going to read up on those Bench Mark programs you sugested, thank you.

If some crawl while others load fine, then it's the site itself. Sites with a lot of embedded Flash and those that connect to a million other sites at the same time will run slowly, no matter what.

That depends on the app - which ones tend to stutter at times?

How close after a clean install are these stutters etc occurring? Windows still needs a little time to 'settle down' after a clean install while services / background tasks do their thing.

Smart Guy, that was one of the best replies that I have ever gotten, your answer were well thought out and informative. I did not detect the slightest since of smugness, thank you very much.

I will take note of those things you mentioned and get back with you, is it OK to PM you occasionally?

I am going to have to repay you? .. .. .. I got it, you know the story of Rumpelstiltskin? Well I am going to give you my first born male child. . . only this is not a fairytale and my first born, Well she gets out of the prison of criminally insane next year and her parole officer will have an armored truck deliver her sedated and strapped like Hannible Lector in Silence Of The Lambs.

Good Luck With That and no you cannot back out cause a deal is a deal

I second the recommendation for Everest. It's a comprehensive program. You can monitor temperatures, benchmark your computer, view and edit settings for all aspects of your configuration. If you're looking to improve the performance of your computer, there's a couple of quick things you can do to reduce memory usage and speed up your computer.

1) Turn off Aero & related effects (Right Click Computer > Advanced System Settings > Performance > Adjust for Best Performance
2) Run a system cleaner/defrag (CCleaner & Defraggler are good examples... See Piriform - Download CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva, Speccy - Millions of users worldwide! )
3) Turn off as many unnecessary start-up programs as you can, the least program you have starting up with your computer the faster you'll reboot.

If you're looking for more comprehensive performance increases, I recommend new hardware over software modifications.

Hope they helped, I have just been looking for some myself.

SEB has a wealth of knowledge and both feet planted firmly on terafirma.

I'm going to use his suggestions as well.
