Solved Best basic Windows benchmark test? Tags: New Build Benchmark Basic Systems Last response: January 11, 2013 1:52 AM in Systems Share bradenthefirst January 4, 2013 5:09:44 PM I am building a new PC, my first in many years. What is a good, basic benchmark test to run on windows on my old PC and then on my new PC so I can feel better for spending the $$ I don't need real detailed info, just basics for Windows (XP on old, 7 on new), maybe video handling, hard drive data transfer. I know there are many benchmark tests out there, I would like your advice on choosing a good basic one. Thanks, Bradenthefirst More about : basic windows benchmark test Best solution Traciatim January 4, 2013 5:17:43 PM Share I just usually grab Passmark's performance test. As long as you pick the same software on both machines you will get a valid comparison. http://www.passmark.com/products/index.htm bradenthefirst January 11, 2013 1:52:14 AM Best answer selected by bradenthefirst.
