Default Mobo: Intel or AMD?

Hello,

Getting ready to build another computer, have been out of it for about 5 yrs since I built the computer below, have heard that intel has surpassed AMD in building mobos...any thoughts on this? I want to spend about $100 for a mobo.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean considering neither company build mobos. Both companies have great motherboard lines made by third parties it just comes down to what brand and what features you want.

This is a good thread to read up on the differences. Most Bang for the Buck, AMD vs. Intel???

Basically AMD is best bang for your buck and ain't no slouch but Intel holds the high end market.

For $100 I would recommend an AMD.

$100 will net you a nice Athlon II quad core CPU, and is almost enough for a Phenom II x4.
