Which benchmarking software for dual core CPU?

I am thinking about replacing my single core CPU with a dual core. The machine is mostly used for video compression & playback. Which benchmarking software is the most appropriate, without being too technical?

I'll answer my own question, in case anyone is searching:-
Eventually I used PCMark04, 3DMark05, and ScienceMark 2.0, with and without Prime95 Torture Test, and/or United Devices.

Brilliant results - best upgrade I've ever done, really makes a difference for multitasking lasrge jobs in the background.
