At stock speeds the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum scores pretty well, not quite as high as the VIA K8T800 Pro motherboards, but pretty close.

PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

PCMark04 is the latest version of the popular PCMark series. PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results.
