Forgot 3dmark01 and Aquamark.

forgot aquamark, cheers. have left 01 off intentionally as i dont really think 01 scores are relevant anymore. tbh i thought 03 was pushing it. i only use 03 for a laugh now.

01 added. just for nol ;) and now apparently kempez lol

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.

Yep 01's a good one to use for more general overall system performance :)

Asus AI Booster as well.

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.

Ad-Aware is excellent. I don't think your thinking of the right program
