Default Windows 7 Build 7000 VS Windows XP SP3 Build 2600 Benchmarks

Since Microsoft released the Windows 7 Beta for download to General Public, I decided to preform an actual install, as opposed to a Virtual Machine install that I've been doing. Now i know that people have benchmarked XP versus Vista versus Win7 before, but *I* haven't done it :P

I'll be benchmarking the following items:

Futuremark 3DMark06
Futuremark 3DMark Vantage *
WinRAR v3.80 700mb compression/extraction times
SpeedTest of Network

*I'm well aware this doesn't run on XP, this is to gauge overclock performance in Win7

We'll see if i can come up with anything else in the meantime. For now here's some screenshots and the system specs:

Motherboard: ASUS M2A-VM
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Overclocked to 3.02GHz
GPU: ASUS EAH Radeon HD 4670 512mb GDDR3 Overclocked
Storage: 320GB SATA
Memory: 2GB [2x1024MB] Kingston DDR2 800MHz

For results and screenshots see:
