As you had in 3DMark06 there is a decent system information tab in 3DMark Vantage that you can use to create an HTML summary of all the hardware and relevant software in your computer.

I mentioned that there were various presets that Futuremark has included with 3DMark Vantage and the first of the four available is seen above: Entry.  This is the most basic setting with a resolution of 1024×768 and the lowest quality settings available.

You can see that as we progress up from Entry to Performance, High and Extreme the resolution increases, the texture, shadow and shader quality increases as does the anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering levels.
