Best way to test Graphics Card performance?


I've recently been experimenting with glxgears, but found people saying this is not an ideal benchmark tool as there are many variants; for example resizing the window affects the FPS tremendously.

I'm interested in testing the difference between using the proprietary ATI driver and the open source driver and also the performance under various distributions.

What's the best software to benchmark graphics cards?

I want to test the graphics card myself, and am looking for some software to do this.
