Dude, enough with the self-fellatio.
A piece of hardware may not be good because of it's brand, but it certainly can be bad. Think about it and tell me if you can't think of a brand that makes bad products, compared to other brands. And I'm perfectly fine with what Ste is saying, so lets drop it.
As for your comment about computers only being so in-depth, obviously a comment coming from someone who doesn't know computers in-depth at all.
Do you think CPUs are all about how fast they run, and videocards about how many FPS you get in a game? What you know is the absolute tip of the iceberg. People like you try to argue your points but have no idea of the underlying workings of the parts you're talking about. You can argue Intel vs. AMD but do you know about how the processors work? Do you know what a pipeline is? Do you know what a stage is (in CPU terms)? Do you know what Prefetching and Cacheing is? Do you know how architectures are different? Do you know what kinds of subsystems are in the processors? Do you know how decoding works? Do you know how this "out-of-order execution" that people are making a fuss about works? Do you know what a 4-issue core is?
All things that determine how a processor performs. A bit more than just the clockspeeds, innit?
I don't pretend to know nearly as much as the [H] folks, but you haven't exactly demonstrated an above-average knowledge of these parts either.
And you can surf [H]ardForums all you want. Most of the topics are general things about what processors to get, what parts to get, etc. But occasionally a topic comes along that requires a higher level of thinking, and that's when you notice how much these guys know. Check out the PPU subforum, there's some decent discussions there quite often. Then you'll see just how complicated computer parts can be.
