You would be very suprised how many AMD and Intel CPU's dont make it off the production line...
Well, U R right- but I'm more interested in the system having good performance for gaming and such, running cool with only air cooling, and not costing both my arms, natively supporting 64bit software, the list goes on.
Intel's current line up fails for the above.
But, I do know- that may VERY well change in a few years. It wouldn'd surprise me if Intel were in the lead again in '08 or so. Wouldn't surprise me at all.
Now I WILL be surprised if they pull off a victory BEFORE then, like early '07. Then I'll be surprised.
