You know what's hard? Trying to hit a specific score with a benchmarking app. PCMark 05 is a great example, since the 220 MB/s HDD startup score is a glass ceiling at hwbot.org, so overclockers have to try to get as close to that mark as they can without reaching it. One might argue that is the main challenge of that particular benchmark.

But it could be anything - like a specific CPU score in Cinebench or a specific SM2.0 Score in 3DM06 - the closest to the target without going over (cue Bob Barker) wins! I gotta admit, I kinda like your idea Meta.
