Who remembers the good old days of building your own PC?  There were some really great web sites like Anandtech and Tom's Hardware that would review and compare the latest CPU's, motherboards, video cards, etc, and also fascinating topics like overclocking.  I remember carefully picking each component for my own build and then running benchmarks to compare with my buds. 


Who's up for running a similar benchmark on their current PC?


Go here:  www.userbenchmark.com

Click on the "free download" link and run the benchmark file.  Then post your results here.

Here are mine:


UserBenchmarks: Game 36%, Desk 84%, Work 61%
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K - 90.7%
GPU: Nvidia GTX 660 - 29.8%
SSD: Intel 540s Series 1TB - 93.2%
HDD: WD Blue 750GB (2008) - 50.6%
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 C10 4x8GB - 61%

I still plan to do some tweaking in hopes of getting SSD improvements)
