Your favorite free program to test a new gpu?

I've seen several, but not sure which ones are free or won't damage the gpu (heard of a case where a test actually overheated the gpu, so I'm a bit wary).

I use furmark to check if my GPU is going to cook itself, its probably the exact test you have heard about damaging cards.

You would be an idiot to run furmark on a long benchmark.

Unigine Benchmarks are effective in testing for stability and overclocks.

I like to lay a piece of meat on the gpu while running furmark.
