My gaming/whatever desktop. I like to go with the sweet spot on the price/performance curve when I buy.

Great minds think alike! :) It's amazing how close your results are to mine. I'm going to study them for a while.

My crappy laptop. It's five years old, and hopefully soon to be replaced. I missed the link to the benchmark page when I first submitted my baseline.

At last, the results from my new build:


Conclusions I can draw from this build:
- The samsung 840 evo drives are a really good intersection of performance, reliability, and price.

- The nvidia gtx 770 is a good card and with the recent price drops it falls into the sweet spot of price/performance.  $100 off the nvidia Shield made it extra nice.

- Windows 8.1 seems like a total disaster at first when coming from windows 7.  But learning to ignore the tile page and setting up the desktop 'properly' and it starts to feel much, much better.  Of note, the passmark results are just a tad worse under win 8.1 than win 7 (for most of the results).  But from my understanding win 7 passmark results can be a lot worse under win 7 than under win XP.  The drops between 7 and 8.1 are inconsequential, though.

- It is possible to receive a fan that is internally wired up backwards during manufacturing so that it spins backwards.

That's my modest contribution to Earths global warming



Average CPU, High 2D/Memory/Disk Mark but horrible 3D Mark.

Conclusion : CW3 is very well coded as it keeps running smoothly, even on big and complex maps, with outdated computers !

I have an older Intel i5-2500K, still running well, but it takes a lot of time to boot up...

Just think what a PCI-e SSD can do :)

Ask your friend to post his results here. I'm always interested in high-performance rigs. :)

Just think what a PCI-e SSD can do :)

I see that's making a comeback now. :) Also I recently read somewhere that a crucial specification is being revides, which will improve PCI-e SSD performance by avoiding the overhead of translating the data stream to SATA.  Will be interesting in a year or so.

Thought I would get around to posting my laptop that I picked up in September.
