What features do you look for in a "timer system"?

If you're using a compiler that supports C++11, then take a look at std::chrono::high_resolution_clock: High resolution precision, and cross-platform. If your compiler doesn't support C++11, then you might consider using boost's version of std::chrono, boost::chrono.

If none of these are viable options, then you'll be stuck writing platform-specific code. In win32, it's QueryPerformanceCounter, QueryPerformanceFrequency, timeGetTime, GetTickCount, and etc. In a POSIX system, it's apparently clock_gettime.
