All of the Futuremark products provide a free version. This free version allows you to run the benchmark at the default settings, which are the exact settings you have to run it at if you want to compare your scores with others running the benchmark. I would recommend you use the free versions until you find the one you are using the most. It is more convenient to have the paid version but its not essential and when your starting out its probably a good idea to get familiar with them first.

As Rasparthe said above, better to use the free ones first till you fine the one you like. 3Dmark vantage is the one I use the most.
