Default Benchmarking and Other Programs

Hey, I'd like to start a list of the programs used for benchmarking and gathering other system information. So if people can post the ones they recommend and what they do that would be great.

Ex. 3DMark05 - Graphics Card Benchmarks

Thank you. Now what does each do. I downloaded 3DMark05, but apparently it's only for hardware with Pixel Shading 2. So after a nearly 300MB download I was told my video card sucks, which I knew it did though but still

So we all know my vid card is to crappy to run 3DMark05. I downloaded 3DMark03 and PCMark05. Good programs except that I have nothing to compare the numbers to. I like Everest. Lots of info. I got rid of CPU-Z for Everest. No point in having 2. Anymore programs
