Or you could go to www.futuremark.com and download the 3DMark tests. Lots of magazines and web sites use 3DMark so it should be easy to compare your system with others.

i've only used it a couple of times. you will have to figure out which one you need, i'm sure they have trials to test it for free.

3DMark2001 tests up to DirectX 8.1. 3DMark2003 has tests for DirectX 9 capabilities. The trial version is not time limited but it does restrict the system settings (resoloution, AA, AF) that you can test at.

For those needing to know the differences:

3DMark2001 (FE) tests DX8.0 capabilities, 3DMark2001 SE = DirectX 8.1

There are ways to turn the "demo version" into the "Pro" version however.
