I have setup data collection sets on some win7 pc's, and I actually like it a lot. I think it works well, however, i was wondering if anyone else has used other software packages that do a good job giving numbers on the performance of a computer.
Specifically, is there something that will give how many seconds it takes to open an application?

you might want to look at some macro recorder applications:
eg

These would let you build test scripts.  If you had these insert time-stamps or to save files, this would give you timings.  

or, stress the hardware itself:

on the other hand - if speed is an issue - install an SSD drive
after all , knowing how long it takes to open does not speed it up
