I'm just curious to know which do you prefer; Intel or AMD? :)

(I like Intel myself)

I personally much prefer Intel, though not based on any good, real evidence.

Intel if you want the best performance.

AMD if you want the best bang for the buck.

Depends purely on whichever gives the best performance for the budget. Currently at home I have an Intel, the E6750 - when I purchased it (almost three years ago now) it was well and truly noted for a great "bang for buck" processor.

It still runs Windows 7 very quick for my needs so I won't be upgrading any time soon. When I do, I'll be comparing the market once again.

AMD rules the lower priced market but intel by far has the performance win - they've had it for about 5 years, now (since they released the conroe core).

AMD. No scientific evidence to back me up, but it's a Fords and Chevys discussion.

It is mostly a Honda Vs Toyota discussion.
I like AMD's they have been known to run cooler.
However Intel processers have been known to be on the top of the performance charts.

Wow, Johanna (and tuxmaster)!!

Those are the exact same analogy I use when people ask me that! Ford/Chevy, Toyota/Honda.

Great minds... :)

But it's not that great an analogy.

Both Toyota and Honda are great. Ford is great, but Chevy is pretty much so-so...

Intel typiclly delivers better when it comes to performance, and is certainly reliable, but can be more expensive. AMD is more easily overclocked and is less expensive but delivers comparable performance in comparisonto Intel. But again, as stated in the previous posts generally Intel does deliever better performance. It is a matter of personal prefernce and what needs you are trying to meet.

Hope that helps!

I go with whatever gives me the best bang for the buck for the system I am building for myself or for a customer. Same goes in regards to graphics cards when considering ATI or nVidia. My desktop system is an AMD platform with an ATI graphics card, but my laptop is an Intel platform with nVidia graphics card.

If I had no budget constraint, I would go with an Intel system at the moment.
