No test would be valid as the amount of power varies widely between plugins. IOW, you might be able to run 48 EQ plugins, but 3 reverb plugins might require the same power. Best to just dive in and load up a session that is typical of your usual work. Its also worth noting that your setup is considered somewhat "ancient" in the world of computers and DAW's

HD10 is also limited to addressing 4gig of ram too, which will have a huge impact on performance if any of those plugins are sample based virtual instruments.
