Benchmark tests question

Hello,
I was wondering which benchmark tests would best fit my needs for comparing cpus. I use pc mostly for CS3 stuff.. photoshop, indesign, dreamweaver, flash, fireworks and illustrator. I check the cpu chart here at toms hardware and im not sure what some of the benchmarks are.

  1. Are you just curious as to where your machine stands in performance, or planning on using it as a base reading for Overclocking purposes?
  2. well, i want to see how mine compares to other cpu's. I wont be OCing. Im just wanting to understand what some of the benchmarks are i guess and which would apply for my needs
  3. Well heres a good place to start your education.
  4. jack, I think an useful benchmark chart should have at least the x2 5600 on the list for comparison, right?
  5. I'm juggling a few balls in the air, and bet you can find better charts than Jack or I recommend, but at least this one has some CS2 stuff:
