once again Intel is flexing their financial might to try and put an even bigger squeeze on AMD.

btw we already knew about the price cut.

I'm sick of Intel trying so hard to finish AMD, I know they're just waiting till AMD's on their last limbs, then they're going to buy out AMD and then we'll have a little monopoly on our hands, not to mention they're probably going to lay off a ton of the combined work force of AMD and Intel.

amd will turn out on top they have to with there k10 series or else intel wouldn't be dropping the prices so much in six months were going to be reccomending C2D for builds under $500 and AMD for anything over
