All the things above don't really give me my true processor speed because they have a problem reading the real core clock in SLFM mode. I use HWinfo32 and Throttlestop to see the real clock speed, multiplier and C0 and CMod values( to ensure not throttling due to thermal control)

I have roughly 100,000 "large digital pictures", (.jpg's and raw) and I do a lot of batch conversions on them. I also like to play with Adobe Premier, Video Studio 10 (HD Video), and Photoshop Elements - When you are dealing with picture databases of this size it helps to have some "horsepower".

And it never hurts to be listening to your favorite tunes all at the same time (64 bit Itunes) and surfing the INTERNET -

Hey we all know in a year or even much sooner there will be a more powerful video card, a faster processor, faster SSD's, etc, etc. Technology never stops.

My system will be viable for a few years then I'll have to start all over again to stay competitive.
