I love AMD because they don't have an annoying jingle. "bum bum..." blah already. Intels do not make that noise! Plus they had the first true dual core.

And my middle name is O'Dell. I'm not embarrassed.

I love AMD because of the Argon core. 700Mhz running at 1GHz in 1999.

I like AMD processors because they offer a good value in terms of performance per dollar.

I've been using AMD since the K6 days and never turned back. The performance to price ratio just can't be beat. Oh yeah and AMD has a way cooler logo than their competitors.

I love AMD processors because somebody has to keep Intel in check! They've always performed great for me. Plus they cater more to the enthusiast market by giving you unlocked multipliers for much better and easier overclocking.

Big fan of AMD since the K2 days kicking ass! Love that they keep Intel on their toes, and the value AMD provides.

AMD helps competition, their price/performance ratio is great and they're making Intel stay somewhat honest on pricing.

I love AMD because I basically grew up with them. Started with an Athlon 1100 t-bird, moved on to a 2300+, moved to a 6000+. Wife still runs a 5000+ n her PC. I'd love to have a X6 for her machine, and a BD for mine.

I have been using AMD ever since I was in my early teens starting from the K6 cores up to today when I was in charge of designing and building my own computers. I have relied on AMD for my daily occurrences and I do not regret purchasing them over Intel. Especially I feel that I get the best bargain for my dollars.

I like AMD because of the Overdrive app, overclock and unlock of the Black series and overall value for performance.

In my opinion the best thing about AMD processors over the years has been their price.

Ive used amd video cards and cpu's for many years now and live in Houston where directron is and have been a loyal customer of theirs for years. Price for Performance you cant touch AMD and you cant beat Directron prices:D
