Now, now ladies! No need to argue about  the different platforms. They are both good to be honest nowadays and I would be happy to run either one compared to what we had even a couple of years ago to work(play) with.  One good thing with AMD is that they make upgrading so much easier and cheaper. Intel (normally) don't have the same outlook and force us to upgrade the whole shebang!

Hi DM, I am have not and never had said that AMD is better than Intel or vice versa. I aimed to go for a Intel platform but is was too expensive for me.
I can see from Allan's rig that it is impressive and I could not afford even half of that and that is the reason I went for AMD due to the cost. There is nothing wrong with Intel.

Now, this getting blown out of proportion, I just asked about the price of the FX Bulldozer so I can save up in readiness. I hope that clears this up, all the best.  :)

Hi teknology9 I know there was no arguing over which is better or anything like that and I am sure knowing Allan that he was just having a laugh as well. No problem at all, we all like to have a bit of banter and a joke around to keep things going.

I have had AMD systems in the past and been very happy with them and in fact at times they have kicked Intel's butt so there is no argument there.

Yes, don't take anything that is said on here to heart. We all have a laugh at each other (often at me by absic!) but it is all good humoured. ;D

I use AMD now as i have in past 3 years or so prolly longer my first one was the sockett 939 2.2.  My last intel was the 3.4 single core. As i havent tried a intel in dual or quad core i cant judge but i am happy with what i have now. AVG scans in about 2 and a half minutes games play fine.

Now that being said i have been wanting to try intle again for the last year so my next one may very well be intel. Either way i am sure both would do what i needed them to.
