Default Futuremark PCMark Vantage

Futuremark's latest PC performance analyis tool is here. PCMark Vantage is the result of two-years worth of development and becomes a worthy replacement for PCMark 05. We take a quick look at what's new, what to expect and what you will be paying. Yes, we said paying.

You can read the article here and discuss it here!

Ahh, you got me beat. The 4GB of RAM and RAID setup helps!

Default 3DMark06

I noticed my score dropped by adding a two 500 gig internal drives.
Is that normal?

Normal if they are slower models. If they are identical to what was there, then it is weird. It could be that they just need to be defragged though.

Oh, you are talking about 3DMark? It's normal to have scores from that fluctuate, but no-so-much with PCMark.
For an "accurate" 3DMark score, it should be run two or three times and the scores averaged.
