New PC build - Power uses???...

  martjc 11:24 11 Aug 2009

I've built a new PC purely as a project. Yes, it runs all the standard programs: Office; photo stuff; internet; movies etc. Am not really into games, but it does run them, in the words of my 18 yr old lad, "Smooooth!!"

The thing is, I know it can do much more and would like to test its capabilities.

I am currently using BOINC for [email protected] Does anyone have any ideas what I can use to test it?

Proc: AMD Phenom 9550 Black quad core
Memory: 8Gig
Graphics: ATI HD 4650
OS: WINDOWS Vista 64 bit

prime 95 has a torture test, be aware it also puts stress on the psu so it needs to be a quality unit.
