    Hey solstice,

    I wanted to know your intake of which CPU makers you find better.
    please keep in mind the following: cost per performance, innovation, design and support

    Please let me know why you picked your choice and what would convince you to cross over to the dark side.

    I am an Intel fan boy, but would love to hear why others may use AMD over Intel.
    It would take AMD to make actual reliable processors (calling out fail dozer) for a bargain price.

    Thanks
    ^.^

    Depends on the type of load you're throwing at the CPU and whether or not multi-threading is important to that workload.

    I use an AMD quad core ( been using for 4 years now no probs with it and it gets the job done for how old it is.) Its durable atleast LOLOL

    I like AMD more as a company and tend to favor their products as well

    I don't do anything heavy that requires a high-powered CPU or GPU, so there really is no noticeable difference.

    Waiting for ZEN to be released. AMD really needs a CPU with strong single Thead performance.
