Default Skyrim Benchmarking help

Hey guys,

Trying to find a new bottleneck and want to find the Hardforum benchmark for Skyrim. Any idea how and where I can find a benchmarking tool to see what is my bottleneck? Cpu or GPU. Currently looking to see the difference between my GTX 460 and GTX 690 and if not much difference in CPU's

Thanks!

I've heard that Blackreach (the underground Dwarf ruins) is rather resource-consuming. A sequence with a lot of NPCs like a fortress attack in the Civil War questline would be good. The battle for Whiterun would probably be best, since it has lots of NPCs and other atmosphere effects.

How do a lot of the sites benchmark their systems where they get firm numbers? Maybe I need to do 3dmark or something.
