How to Benchmark a New Computer?

Just built a new computer (well the GPU is old). I'm wondering how the cool kids are benchmarking machines these days. Any suggestions/thoughts would be greatly appreciated :)

    Mmmmm, 3DMark Demo? Free download on Steam...

    It's what I used when testing my system when going from a single GPU to a dual. The demo gives access to three benchmarking runs and checks you against all other computers who have run that benchmark. For more in-depth stuff, you gotta pay to play.

    But it worked for me, just to see what gains I made on their arbitrary rating scale. =D

    Happy benching!

    SuperPI, furmark, 3dmark, aida64, cinebench, iometer. That's where you start.

    Just to add on to this question, what's the easiest way to find out what is bottlenecking me most or what is the most important to upgrade?

    I broke down during the holiday steam sale and bought 3dmark at 75% off, even though I don't need to benchmark my rig… but my steam sale addiction won out…

    Bottlenecking you at what? Because this is heavily application/usage dependent.
