I typically go with whichever processor provides the best bang for the buck at the time. My laptop is an Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor as it takes the least power and provides the best battery life. My desktop is an Intel 9550 quad core. My primary Linux desktop box is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ and my server box is an AMD Sempron 64 2800+. So, as you can see, I'm spread quite evenly.

It can also help people that are planning to build a computer decide on the which processor to buy.

#1). Good case with space behind the mobo to hide cables
#2). Modular Power Supply Unit where I can use minimal cabling
#3). Lots of time spent routing cables, taping them off, and making them look neat.
#4). A little luck

You didn't cut any holes on the motherboard tray?
Wire management on my Antec 900 is somewhat difficult, but luckly, I have a modular power supply

I have both Intel and AMD - but no preference. The AMDs seem to be faster (on an apples to apples comparison with my laptops). But that is just an impression, no scientific statement.
For vanilla applications I prefer my AMD 4800+ over my Intel Q6600 quadcore. But for e.g. video editing or filetype conversion, the quadcore has the edge. Both are desktops.
