PCMark can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and
even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark
specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard
drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even
speeds the GA-8IPE1000 Pro2 performs on par with the i875P based motherboards.
By combining DirectX8 support with completely
new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001
SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor
manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite
demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test
a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders,
Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping,
support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests
using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better

PAT, no PAT it almost makes no difference to 3DMark.
Either way those are some very nice stock numbers!
