Okay I want to run my PC through some good Performance tests and Benchmark tests. From reading the THG's articles and reviews I see some of the different software out there for this stuff. What I was wondering is what is the MOST popular testing and performance programs and what order do I run them in? Are they all free too?
I basically want to put my computer to the test when my new Antec TrueControl550w PSU comes in and I also want to benchmark some things. I think I might try overclocking the old slug a little bit..
My system: P3 850mhz (100fsb), 512 Micron PC133, Abit SE6, IBM Deskstar 75gxp (60 gig @ 7200rpm), Hercules 3D Prophet 2 GTS (64 meg), SB Live MP3, Pioneer 16x DVD, Asus 45x CD-Rom

Hmmm... SiSoft SANDRA is often used. So is the 3D benchmark 3DMark2001SE. You can also try PCMark2002 although it isn't very populair among some.
