    Default Recommended Benchmarking software

    Hi all,

    I am doing some work on my laptops, m17x, xps 1730 and Alienware 17. I want to do some benchmarking of graphics/ processors etc so I can compare them all. does anyone have any recommendations of some decent benchmarking software.

    I use a couple of games. Metro 2033 has a built in benchmark thats very good. Its the one I use when Im overclocking my GPU cause it works as a good stress tester too since it hammers on the GPU. Crysis 1 has a good built in benchmark as well. Batman Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, FEAR and Aliens vs Predator also have built in benchmarks that I use when Im overclocking and comparing results.
