As for FRAPS:
a) it is time consuming.
-how so? AFAIK I enter the program and then go into the game and take shots with num lock
b) it produces varying results.
-I have been using FRAPS for years and I have benched games over and over using the same settings my results had an error ratio so low that I have trouble computing it to the exact fento
c) it renders comparing numbers between websites impossible.
