Tell me what u think.....

P.S. I'm prolly not going to change anything, but your feedback is appreciated! I don't appreciate someone telling me I should get an AMD though, It's my preference to get an Intel, and I'm not goin back...

edit: attachment is not 56k friendly!!!!!!
Intel is better for gaming anyway. AMD makes chips more suited for office work. Kind of funny how people prefer AMD chips because they wish to operate word at an extream speed....

Actually, AMD is better for gaming and Intel is better for office work. Thats why AMD is very popular among gamers, but businesses will always use Intel.

Just saying i agree with the above two statements. AMD definately has better handling when it comes to gaming.

And i would love to comment on your system, but its not there to comment on!!

AMD has better gaming quality for first person shooters but intel beats it in rts games and thats the facts but i prefer amd because its the only way to go really.

I prefer intel also. I do quite a bit of gaming and my intels don't give me any problems. On the other hand I've had a couple of AMD's that when up in smoke on me.
