Can someone give me the quick rundown on choices for system burn-in or
stress testing software? I'm building a mid to high end system (with mild
to moderate overclocking) but am not familiar with such software. I've read
magazine and on-line reviews for various CPU's, graphics cards, etc. in
which the authors use various kinds of software, including many current
games (none of which I have). What I do have is Sandra, but nothing beyond
that. What are some good freeware choices that would cover stress testing
and maybe even benchmarking for this new rig? Thanks in advance.

on top of franks suggestions I also use:
OCCT -it seams to find unstable systems faster than prime95. just run the
30min stability test
all the 3dmark benches from futuremark. 3dmark05 is the latest, good for
stability test and a benchmark, graphics card makes the huge difference in
and microsofts memory tester tool, it creates a boot floppy that can run
memory tests without being able to boot into windows.
all are free.
