Hardware
Software
Operating System
Applications
Memory
Bus Structure and CPU
Perfomance of any two machines will differ depending on the needs of the user and what the machine is being used for.
the bus structure will determine how fast info travels by type of processor speed and the amount of memory you will use and the application in use,one type of memory will out perform another.
There is a number of factors that will determine how two dissimilar machines will perform.

answer too short for the question asked.

Find a program like WinMark or Dhrystones and benchmark both systems.

Design differences between two boxes can make it impossible to predict which box is faster merely by comparing configurations.

if the only answer i was to get was that i should try out diff.testing softwares then what is the use of giving the question only.really disgusting really very much disgusting

Too bad reality doesn't suit you.

What the **** do you expect, a free engineering course?

i didnt asked for a free engineering course and that also from a beggar like you. I can't think of of it only.the only thing which i would like to clear here is that when a question is being labled difficult you should atleast give a meaningful answer rather than telling me to use different softwares to find it.if i had to do it that whay i wouldn't have put up the question only at the first place.

How will you compare? Benchmark or looking at the architecture of the processor and how it calculates, predicts etc.?

Performance Factors include: Hard Drives are a significant factor i.e. scsi vs EIDE (UDMA 33/66 and now 100). Bus frequency, Processor frequency and Processor cache, RAM amount and frequency (related to bus frequency), and chip set. In re: processor speed it doesn't help much to drive a formula one racing car in a 25 MPH speed limit (bus frequency). Processor frequency has outstripped bus frequency as well as hard drive throughput.

On most test, people compare the processing capabilities of two computer by running some popular software like Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point ...), Adobe PhotoShop... on those computer and compare the time. However, if you want to have an exact result, you make have to test in many computers each type, not only one.
I don't think benchmark software will help in this case. Normally, benchmark softwares are "cheated" and give out the wrong result.
About the performance of a computersystem, there are some main factors (and many more small factors):
- The speed of the processor.
- The speed of RAM, motherboard.
- The more RAMs you have, the faster the computer perform.
- The speed of the hard-drive (thisinclude many small factors like the seek time of the hard drive, the hard drive is defragmented or not... )
- How many drives (like CD-drive, hard drive..) you have. the more drives you have, the slower you computer perform.
- How many program will load when the computer boot.(how "big" those programs are)
- How many program will load when Windows start.(how "big" those programs are)
- How many drives will load when Windows start.
There are some more, but I guess this is enough.

I hope this help,
