Andrew, it isn't hate for AMD, it's performance. Just look at some of the Benchmark threads and the leaderboards. I really don't hate AMD. If they came out with a CPU that could beat Intel I would be very happy and probably buy one.
Hmm okay...

My 8350 does one heck of a job, and costs insanely less than intel. I guess if you want to spend a lot more I understand. Other than benchmarks, I honestly do not see a difference between my buddys newest i7 and mine.

Also once you have a solid state, pretty much no difference anymore.

imho

I don't get it.
Someone will spend $600.00 or more on a video card and worry about few dollars more for a Intel cpu.

This post is not directed at anybody but we all have seen it happen.

I do not hate AMD and have no reason to. I use Intel because they have just always worked great for me and have seen no reason to go back to AMD.

Besides AMD having weak CPU'S the GPU'S get bottlenecked even harder because they don't even have motherboards supporting PCI-E 3.0

Ryan, I used to be an AMD guy but I got tired of saying maybe next year. So, I just figured 'If you can't beat them, join them'.
You and me both Steve although I had to switch to Intel once I found how much my 8350 was holding back my gpu's in benchmarks.

I've had only one AMD machine. I'm not a gamer and I still though it was a dog; a slow, nearly dead one. My little i3 notebook has more pony power than that AMD machine did.

I didn't build it. I had it built by a highly recommended professional builder.
