  1. I spend a great deal of time upgrading, building and repairing computer systems for friends.
    More often than not, I'm asked to tweak or cajole slow, cludgey machines into streamlined mega pc's without the owner having to splash out on new graphics cards, memory etc, this usually means updating the OS, getting the latest drivers, overclocking etc etc and the net result is usually a faster machine.
    However, I find the improvements can be very subtle meaning that I can't rely on eye alone to register any improvement in speed or access - in this case, I normally rely on 3d Mark 2001 for benchmarking but I find going through the entire suite of benchmarking demos can get a bit tiresome, Ideally, I'd like to be able to use a program that tells me more or less immediatley if there is an increase in frame rates, speed etc - is there such a beast out there?
