Fraps is all I have on my system currently. I removed 3dmark03/2001, Aquamark, and the X2 Rolling demo.

The irrational and macho horse crap behavior these benches draw out of people is both frustrating and at times, sickening.I will take the actual game benches, thank you.

When I look for a card, I want to know how it does in games I have and may get. I look at the resolutions and what eye candy is on at those settings. Can card X run the game I like with good IQ and playable framerates, that's it.

Benches were not intended to be the manhood measuring they have become, but were rather intended to be a useful tool.

BTW I have a 9800pro on my other rig,< so this is not a matter of ati/nvidia, its just select fans of BOTH camps can be pains in the arse when dealing with the all knowing bench.
