So you've just gone out and spent a small fortune on a fancy new system. Or you've overhauled Old Reliable, hoping to improve speed and performance. So now that you're done with all this, the question is "did it really make any difference?" That's where you're going to need a benchmarking tool.

NovaBench can take a look at your system and let you know what it sees. In a quick test—generally only a couple of minutes—it takes a look at your CPU's speed, as well as checking out your system's memory, graphics performance, and even figuring the write speed for your hard drive. Once it's all done, you can take a look at those numbers, and even compare them with the results that other folks have gotten on their systems.

NovaBench is a free download. It's available for both Windows (XP and higher) and Mac (OS X 10.5 and later).
