Do a benchmark test at some point and see if my 4yr old laptop can beat it :P

Yeah, do a benchmark so I can walk all over it when I build my stepping-stone in a few months. :D

Yeah, but not bad as far as "Gaming" hardware goes, it's not to my tastes but there's no denying it will get the job done.

That machine will most certainly be a nice build once put-together and should easily meet the system requirement in-order to play Battlefield 3, although I am certain you have already gathered that ;). I would also like to state whilst on this subject that you have made the correct choice in purchasing an Intel base machine apposed to that of AMD, their Bulldozer architecture is a complete and utter failure beyond word in which I can describe.

Try using PassMark; http://www.passmark.com/products/pt.htm
A lot of people also use Cinebench, though I don't trust the results; http://www.maxon.net/downloads/cinebench.html

It's only a 30 Day trial unfortunately, as you're supposed to pay for it beyond that point.

Yea you cant tell that easily but the case is covering quite a few shelves. If theres any girly dvds then will be my girlfriends honest ;D.

Edit; passmark score is 3636.1, cinebench 62fps for opengl, 8.3 point for cpu and 1.74 points for single core.
