Oh come on, man....
Why did you have to go their with AMD and Intel ?
To be honest I respect both cpu makers for what they offer, I like intel because they kept the celeron which had a bad name at first, but becamse pretty strong to rival it's big brothers pentiums and early core2duo's/
I highly respect amd because of their service and what they can bring a broke man living on 30,000 a year.
I have gotten to upgrade my amd boards and cpu's twice as much more than intel because they offer more features and better management of windows vista or windows 7 environments.
Don't get me intel does as well but not as perfectly as normal athlon/phenom series line up can.
If I had to choose right now, I prefer amd for very real reasons and budget wise expenses...
