Out of the Blue

We're off to Pennsylvania today to attend the funeral of my grandmother, which is this afternoon. In an unfortunate (and I am thinking unusual, but I'm unsure of that) bit of scheduling, the burial is planned for late morning tomorrow. Since MrsBlue's schedule will not permit us to stay over, I am considering making the trip again tomorrow for the follow-up, but I am still up in the air about that.

I think part of the point in using 3DMark01 is so that it doesn't strain the video card (though it doesn't say what video card was used, but it was probably a 9800 or 5900), thus giving a better idea of how much performance is gained by the CPU. Some sites do the same thing by using Quake 3 at lowest quality in 640x480.

Given that video cards are still a bottleneck in 3DMark03, it's not very practical to use it to gauge CPU performance gain in games.
