Join us! I myself am an AMD "expat". Went from a T-bird 1100, to a 2300+, to an Athlon 6000+, and of course now I'm rocking the intel in my sig. I still want to see AMD bring a kick-ass CPU to the market, and even now am a huge Radeon fan, but intel is the only way to go for CPU performance. The numbers dont lie. Even my non-SB i5 just plain smokes, runs cool, overclocks like mad, and is rock solid.
Gotta wait for Bulldozer to drop first. You never know, they may actually have something up their sleeve to go toe to toe with Intel. Theyve proven they can make a damn good video card and compete with and beat Nvidia but Intel is another story being 10 times the size of Nvidia and hell AMD for that matter. Still I want to wait for BD to come out before I commit to a new rig. If nothing else, maybe itll shake up prices a bit.
