Welcome to Windows 7 Forums. Our forum is dedicated to helping you find support and solutions for any problems regarding your Windows 7 PC be it Dell, HP, Acer, Asus or a custom build. We also provide an extensive Windows 7 tutorial section that covers a wide range of tips and tricks.
It's funny how much of a division this topic can create it's on par with politics...I feel..."I feel" we all benefit by having a choice to push the competitive spirit and technologies. AMD is good and Intel is good, I'm a AMD man and you may be an Intel person. It's all good as long as they both push the envelope ! Affordable speed and reliability it's amazing how far we've come in such a short time and the future is going to be staggering....can't wait !

Got burned once with a bad Cyrix (a bargain buy which I regretted) and underwhelmed by a mediocre AMD (admittedly my fault for not doing proper research). Nothing but Intel for me now. After all it's my own money I'm spending, I don't want to second-guess myself later. Not to say I hadn't built my share of Intel-based rigs I ended up not liking (hello P4 Prescott, perpetually >60C) but I like the ability to say "no, the CPU isn't the bottleneck here".
