Can anyone suggest a good way to benchmark a new system/CPU against avererages to make certain the parts are all performing as they should, so that I can act within the small envelope of time to return something if necessary.
Thank you in advance for your help.
In case it helps, the system is:
Asus M2N-MX SE Plus GeForce 6100 Socket AM2 Motherboard,
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 CPU Black Edition
Crucial 2x 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 667Mhz
SAMSUNG 500GB SERIAL ATA HD 7200/16MB/SATA-3G
NEC 16X DVD±R DVD Burner ND-3550A
Power Up Black ATX Mid-T Case w/450w
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler -
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste

3d mark is most commonly used...
theres vantage and 3dmark 06
you probably have vista cause its a new build so you can run vantage once
other than those there aren't really a lot of common benchmarks... maybe super pi 1m and other tools like that... most computers get close to 20 seconds in super pi 1m...
