Try the 3DMark benchmarking software. You can download older versions for free. I use 3DMark03 on my 4-year-old POS.

Switch the video cards. I automatically assumed the processors had the top amount of FSB for their generation. If I were you, I would put all the parts into one computer. I own like 10 computers, and recently realized that having a bunch of computers is annoying. So now I have a really nice computer attached to my theatre, a decent one at my desk, and a laptop. All my other parts are just laying in a box.

You nailed it.
Amd running a slowed clocked processor 2.167Ghz and fsb 333.
Intel running Fast clocked processor 2.8Ghz and FSB 400 Min, 800 max. will definitely win the battle.

I've always used at leat 1 AMD pc and found that their processor claim is only accurate in certain applications. Most often I find their stock speed to be a better judge of performace for what I use them for. Currently I have an 3.4Ghz Athlon 64 and my main intel is a 2.6 Ghz Dual core so I can't judge fairly. My last AMD ( XP2200+) was routinly trounced by my 1.333Ghz Intel P3

Again, this would be for what I use pc for. Gaming mainly.

There is more to the processor than the speeds. AMDs are a better processor design for certain applications because of the way it processes. It is more efficient because it spends less time on a single process than an Intel does, which makes the lack of speed negligible.

Compare a current AMD X2 at 2.8ghz with a Core 2 equivalent, and the AMD will run faster and cooler (imo, untested, but drawn from experience with both).

no AMD dual core can beat an equivalent core2 duo except in price.

Default well, that test is cool

How about 729.6, It didnt run all of the tests though, so real results would be higher, but i didnt want to uninstall DX10 and go to DX9 (im on vista ultimate) C2D E6805, 2gb DDR2800, 8800GTS 640mb
