Well for me it has to be AMD. Purely for the price differencial.
For the systems i build and the people i deal with that difference can mean selling a new system or not. But if they want Intel then who am i to argue.

Tau. :P

I said both as I've used both and they both have their advantages. I am looking forward to building a P4 system so that I can do my own comparisons against my AMD machines. 8)

I picked AMD because I think that they can’t be beat for their price\quality.

Well, I had to go with AMD. Basically, my evaluation has a great deal to do with value ($$) and AMD wins that catagory.

I picked Intel, because of course Intel has been around the longest and has always been having innovative and useful technologies. Intels simply blow AMD out of the water as of now. I especially like their anti-burn technology and how HIGH they can overclock :wink: . But competition is a must, and hopefully AMD can strike back something worthwhile with their new .13 micron chip. I own an AMD, but if I could afford, I'd buy Intel.

AMD has been around alot longer then you would think. AMD used to base its designs on the Intel chips right up until the P2 days after it aquired NexGen.
Lest we forget the powerful classic Athlon, to which Intel has NOTHING to rival against it (well maybe the Xeons..).
AMD may yet surprise us.

Intel may be winning the Ghz war, but not the performance war. Theoredically, if you could get an XP up to the same Ghz level, you would see quite a difference between the 2 processors. I am almost certain AMD would be in the lead.

:?: chip = cpu, chipsets = northbridge (/southbridge?)?, though the newer cpu's look like they will have chipsets w/ in the cpu and utilize hypertransport so as to enhance throughput? :?:

My current favorite, AMD. Plenty of power for what I do, and the MPX chipset gives me an affordable 66 MHz PCI to get the TX2 raid needed headroom.
