My System Specs

Default Benchmarking Suite?

Hey all,

I was wondering, just kind of a random question, but;
Can someone give me a list of what benchmarks I'd need to fully assess all aspects of the performance of any given PC? I know the graphics stuff like 3DMark and HDD/SSD stuff like ATTO, but what else is there? (Sorry for the kind of noobish question, I just don't want to scour the net/my issues of Maximum PC).
Who needs a real doctor when you got my machines and their scary needles?
I also go by Silver Blues in lots of other places.
