AMD or Intel? What to Get?


For quite a while now Intel has had the edge over AMD in technology, but AMD has had the better price point for it's similar technology. I've built both kinds of systems and I tend to stick with Intel now. My main issues with AMD were not the CPUs themselves but the other hardware that supported them. Intel CPUs with a mobo using Intel chipsets have never given me any problems. AMD CPUs with pretty much any brand of chipset have had spotty performance for me on a frequent basis, no matter how well I try to research the combination before purchase. AMD generally doesn't make their own chipsets though there are a few boards out there with ATI chipsets in them (AMD and ATI are the same company). I've had less issues with these boards than others.

Personally, AMD. Nothing against Intel though.
