No one's denying that AMD is better to save money, but Intel is the way to go if you want performance.
Also, it's very hard to fry a processor when overclocking as long as you pay attention to guides. Specifically to the part where they say "DON'T RAISE YOUR VCORE BEYOND 1.4V or whatever"
If he posts on the forum and just asks someone like Slaymate for overclocking advice, he'll have no overclocking problems at all.
