The Taj Mahal, Niagra Falls, Amelia Earhart, Intel vs. Amd
...all of those are many wonders that still ponder apon the greatest minds in the world. Though this site is not a mystery investigator we do more then help solve problems due to computers, we talk about computers also. It is in our best interest to help the consumer make a better product and to be happy with what they make. I started this post to ask a question that I'm sure ill get many different ideas and posts from. Who do you think is better...INTEL VS. AMD!!!!!!!
please post your opinions on each product (we are talking about the chips they make but it is still ok to go off on a side branch) you may post articles found on the web or any other resources that you find to help support your case

my personal opinion about this would have to go with intel. although i have made many amd computers in the past im gonna have to say intel is the better product for me due to the preformance it delivers. Yes amd is cheaper but if you really are a computer lover, sometimes money is not the matter and its not like intel is that much more expensive. intel also has better support and newer products, the last amd chip that came out was a month ago which could be equivilent to a year in the tech. world... so im gonna give intel my vote though its a toss up

ok let the gloves come off with you all- ROUND 1

Even though I'm typing this on an Intel, my vote has to go to AMD. You can't beat their price performance ratio, and their 64-bit CPU has Intel scrambling to catch up. It's forced them to all but abandon a billion dollar 64-bit Itanium project. I've yet to own a 64-bit system, but plan to soon.

The mistake AMD has made is not manufacturing their own chip sets like Intel does. All the compatibility and instability problems AMD has faced in the past has come from inferior chip set design (especially from VIA). However, these chip set mfg's have matured, and their last generations of products have been much better.

Besides, without AMD's competition, we'd still be paying $1,000 for a Pentium CPU. <_<

The first system I ever built was an Intel Celeron, I think it was the 600 that I overclocked. Then came the AMD Athlon @ 1ghz, I built quite a few AMD systems after that, until just recently, the Intel P4C w/Hyperthreading and and 800mhz FSB, as well as great overclocking potential brought me back to Intel. Isn't it great to have both!

Hi
MY VOTE GOES TO AMD !!!!!!!!!!
I built up to 8 systems a week. Right now I just did some work on a intel p4 1.8g system for my son. I'm running a Amd 1800+ 1.53g I have both systems right next to one other. My son is a little upset because he said he had a faster system then mine well with both systems right next to one other you can see that my system smokes the p4 in performance there both running the same amount of ram and video ram harddrive speed. So I have to go with Amd being the faster chip to go with. seeing the systems running next to one other seeing that the AMD is doing things faster then the P4 says it all.
AMD <_<

I'd have to go with Intel. Their mobos in my experience tend to be somewhat more stable. While AMD's 64 bit monster is a big step forward, there is no operating system for the home user available to take advantage of a 64 bit system. I have heard it makes some games run superfast. What I am looking forward to are the reviews for the PCI Express.

If you were going to build a computer just for gaming purposes only which would you go with? <_<
