Plots Corrected

I have corrected the plots - apologies for the error.

I have also annotated the plot with a couple processors that fall off the line.

Everything makes sense. Clearly the DAW Bench is an important metric for judging an upgrade. The PassMark can also be used with the caveats that single core performance, cache and chipset also contribute.

Thank you for all your work. All this benchmarking is critical to understanding how much improvement any given upgrade will yield - given that any computer I have ever wanted (to build) is going to cost ~$2000 (a used Les Paul).
