  1. Hey guys! I recentyl built my own PC, a really powerful machine but I have only ever reached its limits once - through a stress test. The specs are below:
    - AMD 8350 CPU, 8 core @ 4GHz
    - 16GB RAM dual channel @ 1866MHz
    - Gigabyte 7950 graphics card OC to 1GHz
    - M5A99X Evo R2.0 motherboard by Asus
    - 120GB SSD
    - 1TB Western Digital Green Hard Drive

    I am woundering (has to be free, not much spare change at the moment!) what applications/games can I download that would utilise all the umph in my new PC

    What. No offense, but this is kinda silly.

    Just buy any games you enjoy playing. A lot of the latest ones won't give you >50fps on full detail @ 1920x1080, so that's a test for your PC right there.

    As far as applications... trans/encoding video and audio is always a good one to load up your system. I don't know why you'd do that "for the lulz" though...

    Try running some VMs too - VirtualBox.

    Take up CGI as a hobby. I have some scenes that will take a good hour or two to render a single frame on that setup. Should be a good test if you just wanna stress it.
