Default Clueless on benchmarking

I've been wondering...what are these benchmarking tests I read a hear about?

1. What do they do?
2. Which ones are there?
3. How do I conduct them?
4. What are good results?

What do they do - Help you compare your system's performance with that of other systems

Which ones are there - The two main ones today are 3DMark03 and Aquamark 3

How do I conduct them - Just download them and start the program!

Good results depend on your video card. While a GeForce FX 5200 will likely score under 1000, a GeForce 6800 Ultra will likely be well over 12,000!
