    So far we know it's a stable system but can it stand up to other systems in real world conditions? First off, we decided to test for CPU power via our favorite synthetic benchmarking program, Sandra.

    SiSoft Sandra
    Dhrystone ALU 4120 MIPS
    Whetstone 2110 MFLOPS

    I'll let the numbers talk, nothing is getting close to this computer. Time for the memory benchmark.

    SiSoft Sandra Memory Test
    Int ALU/RAM 510
    Float FPU/RAM 570

    Although this is a benchmark not commonly used in testing for video cards by other sites, we thought it would be a good addition since it will test and give results scaling by speed better than most other programs. By the variances in the score, we should be able to see whether the big or small jump is worth it. 3D Mark 2001 is my favorite in terms of testing regarding CPU speed. For the test, we used an MSI GeForce2 Pro 64MB DDR with the 12.41 Detonators.

    MadOnion 3DMark 2001
    @ 1.3GHz 4895
    @ 1.6GHz 5883

    There was a jump of almost 1000 points in the benchmark, which is pretty good for the 300Mhz increase in clock speed. If we used a GeForce3 card in this system, I'm sure the score would've broken 7000 for sure.
