Currently im on my intel system and new Rigs (AMD) off especially for gaming. I game mostly with this system since it supports 9800XT 1GB Corsair XMS, basically its the computer thats on all the time so why not use it. Other rig is far superior but ive gotten use to this Intel.
Both are good and I doubt crashing is the result of the AMD chipset.
I wouldn't buy or build any system other than an AMD.
Intel is overpriced and a great under achiever as far as
I'm concerned. Too much money spent on advertising and
not enough on their products. AMD has a very far superior product.

I am the captain of my soul."
I used A P3 500, then p4 1.3 w.rdram but when I upgraded to a Amd system I saw why their product is superiour. The price is lower but performance is identical if not better. Now I have a Semptron 3100 @ 2.1ghz, 512 OCZ Premier DDR400, Radeon 9800 Pro This system I bet will beat any 3.0ghz p4 rig....its time everyoen sees the real superiour product....time to amd everyone
The last time I had an Intel chip in my personal system, was a P90. I've had AMD ever since and have yet to be disappointed. If you are on a budget (like me) you have to consider AMD. Bang for the buck is not a known tern in the Intel camp.
I use both Intel and AMD processors and have found each to be powerful in its own arena. AMD chips, however, have surged ahead in most statistics and benchmarks at the moment and so I'm totally pro Athlon 64. Although I like the Athlon 64 I'd like to see Intel put out a competitive and powerful CPU in the near future...we've had the Pentium IV for too long now!
hey Mr CustompcCases, i suggest u back off with the insults to other members, no one is a dumb ass on here and how u just acted u proved to be one, perhaps u need to reread the Guide at the top of every post you make and also the FUP, cause if u dont start following rules you are gonna Get Permantely banned from this website, plus for those who start bashing one another if they have intel or AMD will also get a little notice from the moderators around here cause ur trying to start another "vs topic". just remember be nice cause if u dont u will receive some major punishment for ur bad demeanor. Where does it state anywhere in the title with the phrase Intel vs AMD/AMD vs Intel!?!?!?
Im by no means anti-intel, however I have being using Athlon for awhile now. They've always been cheaper for the peformance (at least in the UK) but a couple of years ago were marketed as being slightly less reliable than Intels. that has kinda been true in my experience, but with the release of the Athlon 64 i can no longer say that, my new computer has never ever crashed (i kid you not) or forced itself into a position where it needs a reboot, although of course programs do occasionally.
I really hope intel get back up to speed, because even if your a diehard athlon fan, without intel they are more or less going to have a monopoly and the prices will shoot back up - low prices rely on competition!
Shut it up. The initial post was poorly written and entirely senseless. The way I (and I assume other readers) read the discussion, the poster was labeled "dumbass" because of his misunderstanding of the subject and his poor use of the english language. For you to respond in the way in which you did, you have NOW planted the seed for another "vs." conversation. The previous comments made no mention of such a discussion.
Then again, what can I expect from someone who uses a Thermaltake fan and a "VGA Silencer".
Now to the subject at hand...
Whether you are looking for a low-end Celeron/AthlonXP or a high performing 3.0GHz+ P4/Athlon 64 or in the market for a Xeon/Opteron server, at any given price point AMD has a chip to outperform Intel's offerings.
