Default Benchmark Software

What software do most of you use for benchmarking? Just finished my build. Windows is installing now, and I'm curious to see what kind of marks I get.

No free software? I don't feel like paying $$ for someone to tell me my computer is fast - especially since I don't plan on overclocking right now.

3dmark is free, most of their things are just not the full versions. The non full versions are good enough though.

Thanks. I just ran 3dmark. I scored 7408. This is without any tweaking. What is a 'good' score?

Now I have to figure out where/how to start overclocking.
