Default Looking for nice 3D "tech" demo

Can anyone recommend a 3d tech demo (doesn't need to be a benchmark) that's nature-based, got some nice water reflections and is generally calming to watch.

I've got an XP1600+ oc'ed to XP1900+ speed with a GF3 Ti 200 that oc's nicely if I need it. I'd like to apply some of this power and see what my baby can do...with some sooting eye candy too.

Any recommendations?

3DMark2001 has a nice nature scene, which I'm sure you're aware of, but the other great nature benchmark that I know of is Codecreatures. You should be able to find it at www.codecult.com. Also, the X-Isle tech demo is fabulous. I thought you could get it at www.crytek.com, but the site is totally redesigned so it looks like you cannot download it from there anymore. But check out the site anyways, there are some good things going on. Codecreaturesand X-Isle are the only ones I know of though, would like more though for sure.

Yeah, X-Isle is pretty sweet and is sure to stress any card when some AA is applied.

What was that one with the skeleton prancing around with a torch in the different settings? It was cool.

That was the dancing skeleton screensaver, but I can't remember who published it. It was pretty cool though.

Glad to help, I too have only just started using ss again. Here is another good one which is what im using now Cave this is really nice, can be used as a winamp plug in also. As its a bit old now, you can use high res with FSAA and it doesnt slow down.
