Re: Upgrading my PC

You need something processor-intensive, to show any differences, but it should also be something that you need to do.  For me, encoding a video slideshow with Proshow Gold would be a good test.   Some of those DVD's took more than 30 minutes to process.

If your tests seem typical of the work you need to do, then they are good tests.  If there is little difference, it just means there is little difference in the stuff you need to do, not necessarily everthing.

Whatever you do, it needs to be repreatable.  I'd run it 3x initially.  Watch out for caching skewing the results.  Maybe reboot between runs.
