    ok bear with me i am a newbie at this, my old pc wasnt worth testing but my new one is what i want to know is how do i test it, where can i get a prog that will test it and what exactly am i looking for when i do test it, i have tried sisoft 2002 and dacris benchmark but they both spoke in strange tongues and frankly made my system behave a little weirdly even when they wernt being used, how about one of you tecchie types going in depth a bit to explain some of what i am looking for

    amd 1700+
    256 2100 ddr
    gf 2 400mx (i might be wrong but someone told me my particular card was fitted with ddr) 64mb
    40 gb 7200 hdd
    5.1 creative
    dvd rw
    cdr rw
    tape and a floppy

    and can someone give me an indication of what kind of perform i can expect, i have no idea about the motherboard apart from the fact it is based on via chipsets but i do know it has a 266fsb
    as i said i am a newbie so be kind and laymans terms please

    Not sure I got what you meant, but if its laymans terms I'd say the performace should be good, bordering on very good but not outstanding compared to any new computer.
