I am looking to find the best free PC benchmarking/testing tool - I had a look at Worldbench6 and at £160 it's a bit outa my price range!

Any suggestions much appreciated!!!

Is Belarc best system inventory tool?

When I saw your post I thought that it was a good idea, so I started with "3DMark06", until I saw it was to help with gaming machines and a 584+ MB download. I do not, and will not, do any gaming so I gave up on that one. So then I thought that I would try "Stress Test with Prime95", but with all the fannying about I didn't bother with that either. I have followed some download suggestions elsewhere in the forums and - probably me being perverse - I get really annoyed when all I want to do is to download a programme but you are forced to jump through 3,4 or 5 hoops just to do so. I find that I just give up more and more these days. Anyway from the other comments here your suggestions seemed much appreciated.
