I know man it's all good
I'm biased to HATING ASUS myself so even though there are people that have had good luck with them, I will swear by the fact that they suck and have terrible tech support. I am also Biased towards AMD (as if you couldn't tell) so that effects my decision. I've only had one Intel and that was my old 133 and I knew NOTHING about computers at the time, so it was only by fate that I had nothing but AMD after that. Like I've said plenty of times, I don't doubt Intels can be strong machines and monster gaming machines and whatnot, its just in my opinion and observance that suggests to me that Intel is out for marketing and mainly hit up the people that don't know what a computer is all about, meaning people who buy Dell or PeoplePC or HP, stuff like that, people who never open up their computers. I feel that AMD is built more towards those who want to know every inch of their inner computer and that AMD is for the consumer rather than marketing companies like dell and whatnot.
And yeah celeron...eww...I feel ya there cause my first AMD was a 750MHz Duron which is the AMD equivelant of the celeron...good lord that thing was SLOOOOOOW.
Your computer would beat the hell out of mine looking in your sig. That's quite a powerful machine and it can handle just about any game you throw at it. There is no doubt in that. So really 'AMD vs Intel' Can and will never be answered, because you simply can't compare the two. It's like apples and oranges, two completely different fruit, but they have the same primary goal, to be eaten
some people like apples, some like oranges and it's something you can't change.
By this point I've forgotten but wasn't the thread owner an Intel owner his whole 'computer life' ? So if he really wants to learn about computers then try switching processor companies lol Nothing will make you learn like not knowing a damn thing about what you want to purchase
