Intel may make thier own chipsets and all that garbage, but they are still to pricey IMHO. AMD 3200+ is $160 at this time, I would be willing to bet that NOBODY could find a decent Intel Proc for that price. As for MoBos, you can get intel chipsets for AMD systems (DONT). Believe me that is not a good combo. I had a server running with a intel chipset and an AMD Proc.... i coulda had a mouse in a cage get more work done.

Not saying that intel by itself is bad but i definitally think AMD does the right thing to give the customer what they want. They MAY have a few driver issues but for almost half the price I will take the risk.
