A score of 1567!! Is your pc modified with a view to world domination? ;0)

On a more serious note, I visit "The Pit" about once a week. This is just to see if it highlights any problems with my system and to see if my pc's "behaviour" has changed, i.e.see if a score for a particular test has changed much.

I have come to realise(with a little advice from other members on this forum)that benchmarking isn't the be all and end all. In saying that, it's easy enough just to run the tests and see if anything is glaringly amiss and needs addressing.

dagwoood.

P.S.My score is round normaly about the 1350 mark. If we're not careful, this thread may turn into a "mines bigger than yours" thread.

I find it to be inaccurate which has caused many on here to dismantle their pc when there is nothing wrong.

I don’t rely on benchmarking and believe that if there is something really amiss you can generally tell by system performance and this being web based will vary more than a localy installed program.
I don’t think My PC is ready for world domination yet, and on a serious note I build my own PC's for my needs which are mainly web building and photo editing (large files) so have 1.5GB ram and good graphics card

I agree totally
