I like 3dMark 2001 SE for D3D benchmarking.
GLXS for Open GL benchmarking. Quake 3 Arena is also good.
For general CPU/memory/HDD speed I use PCMark 2002.
Sandra is good, but its benchmarks are so synthetic that they donít mean jack.

dacris is good, but I say one of sandra's uses is that its burn in module is VERY useful for stablity testing.

I got a good stability tester for my PC - it runs your CPU at 100% load.

Got SETI?
