I used to use 3DMark on my PC back when I had one which was fun. I downloaded Geekbench which is also cool, but I wonder if there is anything that tests your 3D performance?

What about CineBench (http://www.maxon.net/pages/download/cinebench_e.html)?

I downloaded it but I can't figure out how to get any kind of bench mark going. It looks like a 3D modeling app along the lines of Maya to me. Is there a step by step "how to"?

You just press the Start All Tests Button and it goes through a OpenGL test and then a single core rendering and then all cores rendering.

Here are the results from my custom "Mac":
