Actually 3dmark01 is still quite relevent.

01 is heavily cpu

03 is medium cpu, more gpu

05 is heavy cpu and gpu

06 is heavily cpu

Since 06 is general crap IMO, 01 is still quite relevent.

Add Videolan Client (VLC) and Sygate. Ad-Aware I'd remove, they took bribes from spyware companies or something iirc.

Well, for AMD boards at least, ASUS AI Booster is considered to be one of the most evil things as it can't really do jack and just causes system instability. Dunno bout intel though. I suppose it would do something as ASUS Intel boards are considered some of the best.
