Should You Use Both 3DMark Vantage & PC Mark Vantage?
For gaming on Vista and a DX10 card, is it optimal to bench test with both 3DMark Vantage and PC Mark Vantage, especially when you want to really test out the system?
Also someone I knows needs this for stress testing to make sure his hardware is ok. Besides Orthos, and memtest I forgot what other apps are out there to stress test with?
He says he can barely turn AA on, so I want some good stress testing for the gpu, mobo, and psu.
P.S. I just heard about OCCT FurMark, and LinX that they're better apps...
