I got through some of that, but didnt finish reading it.
I really dont see where everyone got the idea that Intel is substandard and doesn't even come close to AMD
I've owned both Intel and AMD, and found very little performance between the two.
My current machine is AMD, and is in my sig. By no means do I regret building an AMD, but it definitely isnt lightyears ahead of the Intel machine I had.
But, I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion, mine is unbiased either way. Same goes for Nvidia and ATi for me.
