For a long time, Intel has represented Quality while AMD has represented Value.
That being said, currently AMD has easily competitive graphic (especially in integrated units) and overall computing power to Intel, and in the end it boils down to spending the extra money because you are a 'fanboy'.

Edit: or an 'elitist'/'perfectionist' I suppose.
ExEdit: This is not a AMD vs Intel thread!

I like the 'Porn Box 9001' name, I've never been into DBZ, but it's funny seeing the reference permeate the masses.

no, it boils down to paying for performance gains. or, if you want to look at it another way, paying to not have to basically ignite your el cheapo CPU in order to get its performance level in a ballpark comparable to that of an Intel chip

the fanboy argument is only invoked by amd owners for a reason

The reason amd has better igpus is because they bought ati. Let intel buy nvidia and we'll see what happens...

Saying that AMD isn't even in the ballpark of Intel is fanboy speak!

Edit4Ninja: Reasons for becoming better are irrelevant.

Seeing as I'm fending of Intel fanboys, I'm probably sounding like an AMD fanboy: not at all, I am a fan of nothing but reason and pragmatism (redundant much?). Anyways, back to my point of being off topic, I won't be replying to further vs. comments.

Amd hasn't made a competitive hedt CPU since 2006.

You, and I both, know that is untrue. Sure: the i7 is incredible (pure <3 sauce); however, that is in the 'perfectionist'/'elitist' category I aforementioned. I'm 99% sure no one here has a career that requires the computing power of an i7.

P.S. I am severely buzzed, hence my conflicting response.

However people here do need the power of an i5 which still out performs AMD cpus in its "class"

Those i3's that can hang, gaming wise, with top-end amd chips are simply frivolous as well

Agreed: the i5 is a more (currently) practical platform.
In my opinion (and limited experience), AMD lies close to i5; but, more realistically, between the i3 and the i5.

So if you're saying that top-end amd chips aren't even as good as 2nd-tier intel chips saying that amd isn't even in the intel ballpark seems pretty reasonable

Still lower than pretty much any of intels current decent chips.

I typically name my system after the code name of the CPU's core. My 3570K machine is named 'IvyBridge', and prior machines have been 'Clarkdale', 'Regor', and 'Aarondale'.

With that theme in mind, my suggestion: 'Vishera'

Not if you overclock it and pair it up with 2400 ram

do the same **** with an intel and it will still be better. You don't compare overclocked vs stock you compare overclocked vs overclocked

Mad? lol....But then again I wouldn't spend $300 on just my CPU. Bottom line my rig is still getting a **** load of frames and runs anything on max settings .... What components do you have in your rig?

And an OC'd intel chip with 2400 ram will still outperform an amd chip OC'd with 2400 ram. Anything else you say is now invalid as you ruined any sort of credibility you had prior to this.
