AMD is better for gaming, while Intel is better for business computing and video editing.

Although Intel is better for big apps I would still go for AMD unless the Intel supports Hyper threading or its a dual CPU system. I wouldn't mind waiting a few extra minutes.

Yeah I think the Intels can handle the bigger apps a little better cause they have the higher GHz mainly because I BELIEVE it's due to they have big *** thick pipelines for the information...BUT...the AMD chips are designed so that they do more instructions per clockcycle than Intel...that's why you can have a 2.2GHz AMD chip compete with a 3GHz Intel.....intel is getting pretty expensive and it's like they got a big head or something like they are the sh!t....so in my opinion AMD is a great CPU to go with and has wonderous OC'ing potentials if you get something like the 35w 2400+ XP-M......the M stands for Mobile..yes thats right....mobile.....it's just like the 2400+ XP.....except it's...well...mobile lol thats the cool thing the mobile will fit into your desktop because they are both Socket A. Since it has a lower wattage (about half of what a normal CPU is) it'll be cooler and have lower temps and make room for easy OC....if you're at all interested in OC'ing that'll actually have a good effect. The two best AMD Chips in listing of the best first is:

35w 2400+ XP-M
2500+ XP

The multipliers are locked on the 2500+ unless you get lucky and get a chip that was made before week 39 in production...the mobile....are all unlocked hence another reason why it makes a good chip for OC....sry for the lack of intel info, but I don't know too much about intel and an AMD Advocate myself

Well, you already know my answer, having posted in many of your threads, but for this thread's sake, I love Intel. I have said this before somewhere: "my first AMD was my last AMD", no more for me, unless I get a FX 64 uber whatever.
