    What benchmark? What is your system? Things like 3dmark03 or Aquamark are very graphics card intensive, other measurements, like memory bandwidth, whetstone/drystone, etc. don't use it at all.

    There are at least limited versions of them free, 3dmark03, aquamark,
    other good stuff
    The base versions are plenty for most use, and not real expensive to get the whole thing

    I was having some trouble determining how good my video card was (a little while ago), so I downloaded the 3dMark03...not sure what counts as a good score either.

    It depends on what your system is (particularly your video card). There's a thread at Devhardware.com that compares some scores, which might help. Otherwise, we need to know your specs and your score. (Or you can get full version of 3dmark, which I believe allows you to upload & compare scores, not positive though)
