I think, that's a good Idea.
When you ask a question in a Game related forum, you get most times a
for the logs of msinfo.exe and dxdiag.exe

And in addition to the DX7, DX8 and DX9 rendering tests, we could add
- OpenGL rendering test
- GDI32 rendering test
- DX10 rendering test
- the framerate for all rendering tests
