AMD is always the best in my book because its the underdog, and I believe it has the best value for the consumer market. I would like to see AMD Bulldoze Intel this round, I have bet my chips on it (figuratively and literally!)
But beyond that I love the general bang for buck that is typically found with AMD CPU based systems.. Not to mention that the BE chips are great values for hose of us willing to manually input some adjustments into the bios & get great overclocks for next to no work or extra cooling required.
email@example.com with stock voltages & a 212+ rock stable since the 2nd boot after putting the CPU in my system. Could push for more, but then it might resemble work
Edit: Oh & my Phenom 9150e that has been pushing my home server through WHS & now Amahi is also very cool for being a baby quad
I love AMD procs because they are fast, inexpensive, perform great, and have never let me down. I've only ever had 3 non-AMD procs in the probably 11 computers I've built/rebuilt for myself. From a 386DX-40 to my current Phenom II X4--and a bunch inbetween--I love me some AMD.
