How do I see how my new Video Card is running!

Are there free progams to test and see how the graphics card is performing. I hear about these programs people use for benchmark testing, but I've never used them. Can someone get me started? How about programs to see how my overall system are running.

Thanks

  1. Use 3DMark05
  2. Good idea!

    Get 3dMark05 at: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark05/

    There is a free version at the bottom of the "for private use" column.
  3. To see if the components are operating at rated, get a copy of Sisoft Sandra. It's also a freebee, just google for it.

    You posted it in the CPU Forum originally ... I just moved it here, not you. Please check the appropriate forum to post in.

    Go look in the CPU Forum ... you will see a shadow copy of your original post.
  7. Oh. Well that explains it. It wasn't intentional. I'll be more careful.

    Thanks.
