How do I benchmark my computer? i want to benchmark how good it is with game. how do i do it?
You need a benchmarking program such as 3D Mark 05, or Aguamark. You can google them and find their sites and download them. They will run on your computer and through a series of videos and tests give you a score which you can use to compare to other computers.
im guessing I should use 3Dmark since iwant to see how good my computer is with games?
Yea - that is a good one to start with.
Lotsa good programs out there, depending on what you want to benchmark:
You might find some other ideas here:
I got 4337 on 3Dmark 05... is that good? I did a cpu test and all of the other tests. i got around 20 fps
Not bad, pretty nice for the system in your sig (if that is the one you tested on). I got a 7627. To measure FPS withing games you can use Fraps (I use it often for screen shots too).
I read on Digg a guy getting 17 560 point on 3dmark 05. it was the world record. it seems so huge compared to mine...whats your system Ryan? Whoops nevermind I see your sig at the top
i tested doing everything... like those squares the go across the screen, and i got a lower score... is this normal or does it just do more rigurous testing... it was only lower by about 50.
It's in his signature - look at his first post in this thread.
I might be able to get pretty close (JK JK) to that after I upgrade to dual 7800gtxs... I think David M got darn close to 13,000... maybe he has broken it now by OCing.
That's disgusting. Pure disgusting.
And I was happy with my score - it was somewhere between 3800-4780...dont remember.
Well I think - I will never be able to break any sport related record, any natural oddities record, any strength or intelligence record - might as well go for the highest 3D mark score ... lol... well I was going to do the upgrade anyway - might hold off now and buy imediately when a new set of cards comes out... or not.
Now come on. I've always been for growing a third arm. I swear somebody will do it one day - and it wont be radiation induced either. Go for the gold!
Actually I editted my post saying that I realized his system was in his sig, but it looks like as you where posting that message as I was editting mine.
My current computer prolly wouldn't top 1000 in 3DMark05 I'd imagine, and I don't care. It plays the games I want it to, and I can trawl the internet easily enough
Do you get the same scrom everytime you run it? or do the scores very?
They should vary each time you do it - it fluctuates based on a number of variables.
Nope - mine vary mostly depending on background applications - temperature - and the number of times I have run it in a row - they dont vary much; +/- 20
