I'm all for AMD , as far as 64 bit , i'm not there YET>  socket A 3200 W/ MSI k7n2 delta 6570, not a very stable O.C>ing board. Smooth as all @ 2200-2300, after that it operates, but I havent figured out how to slow the rest of the bus down yet, so I get crashes, from I believe the Video Card 9800pro. No heat issues.

wow.. i love these threads..

For me.. it depends on the platform I am on..  If i am using my laptop it is Intel all the way!  AMD's mobile platform cant even come close to the performance.  Desktop I am AMD all the way.  Yes.. i know conroe is coming out later this summer.. but so is A2 with DDR2..  I am pretty sure that AMD isnt going to just let Intel take over #1 in the desktop arena with out a fight.. which means good chips from both companies for us! 

I have run just about every version of Intel except for the P4, and have never really had a problem with them..(never really wanted to run Prescott) I have run/built AMDs from the K6-2 days to the X2 Athlon.  I had one problem on one of the 754 Athlon 64s when it was first released.. I am pretty sure it was a mobo issues as the customer RMAed the board and the problem went away..

I used to own a 3.4ee intel processor, back when it came out, a year ago or so i believe - it was o/c to 4.6 stable (could run it all day and night) - and was not easy by all means - i used a thermoelectric water cooling kit - i could have pushed it further, but I decided to sell the system for a crap load of money lolz - i couldnt resist it - today I have an amd 3700+ @ 2.75 and it literally blows the old intel away - its amazing - i had to push the voltage on the 3.4ee so much, and on this amd its actually undervolted - craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy - it seems a much better choice for overclocking - at least for me....my next step is a dual core opteron or whatever comes out when I decide i need a change - oh yeah, and DFI all the way !

I go along with dlewis23,mainly because that is my set up,

I am bit of a AMD fan, but my intel -laptop has inpressed me,

I think it all comes down too what you started with (750 Duron , 64Mb ram , 16Mb vid, & win M.E.) now 2.8 Athlon, 1Gb ram , 128Mb vid,

Xp, still like M.E. think I was the only one that did  :roll:

I love AMD, for many reasons, there only downfall in my opinion is the cache.What is there deal W/ small  cache? Good for gaming, but if your multitasking, forget it. My way of testing is to run an internet stream , some sort of simple prog say exel or quickbooks, music W/ video , and lets say rendering something. W/ Intel  mostly functional, but AMD........Go make a bowl of popcorn!

Intel needs the bigger cache because of no integrated mem controller, so if it needs to fetch something from the memory it slows down a lot more than any AMD with HTT. AMD is working on bigger cache though, with ZRAM.

FORD & AMD ** MORE POPCORN!!   :haha:

OH, and blondes.  :D

Mostly, as stated before. Unless you build your own, or game. It does not make much difference.  :shrug:   :read:

But this a discussion, and we have to discuss.  :downtown:  :argue:

I agree with everything except maybe the blondes part. Mmmmm redheads. Ahh who am I kiddin, I love 'em all.

AMD all the way, cheaper, better cooling

Plus AMD delivers more bang for your buck

plus amd has had more innovation than intel in the last few years

i support Inovation

Plus amd is very good here in austin for the local economy

Im looking at getting a svcholarship with them or ibm which also has helped austin 4 years
