Default unholy union and why you should always stick with Intel

http://www.crn.com/sections/breaking...leId=193500828

sure some of you say, support the smaller company...blah blah blah

they all strive to be one thing, a business to make money. Intel is better at it, and now has again better chips...

AMD though still smaller, has proven it thinks corporate big, thumbing its nose at you! Lowly consumer, hehe

I josh, I kid...have fun reading!

Whatever. So supply is a little short for local computer shops, that's not a big deal to most folks like us. Newegg isn't out of stock

Well i use the smaller comp store's all the time,Being in Canada you don't have to much choice's for buying online,Plus most of the place's that do ship here are more expensive anyway's,It's alot easier just to go down the street and pick something up for the same price or better most of the time,Plus you don't have to pay shipping and put up with the RMA bull if something goe's wrong
