I always had a Intel, a Dual Core and a Pentium 4, and i never complained about it. But yesterday i bought a new PC with an AMD processor and the performance is great with a good price! Better than Intel. I am thinking in always take AMD for now on. Is it a good ideia? Which you prefer? Intel or AMD? Why?

If you only use your computer for a limited time each day (say 5 hours of less), then AMD would be enough for home computers. Intel are built for longer use or continuous usage 24 hours day, 7 days a week. My previous processor runs on AMD and haven't given me any problem too after 7 years of usage.

Thanks for the advice. And i agree with you, i almost had Pentium 4 for 3 years spending 12 hours on PC and never occured a error.

I prefer to used AMD than Intel. I started using AMD since 1995 it was socket 7 before until now I have AMD Athlon 5600 X2. I like AMD because its immune for overclocking and most of all cheaper compares to Intel. The only thing with AMD is you must have a good cooler fan and you must know how to choose the right thermal take. AMD with atleast 63watts CPU is better enough without changing your manufacturer CPU fan. Intel, what I don't like about these Processor is that its only fast when you first assembled/installed it. The longer the Intel is being used so bunched of program that I used to have its becoming slower. I don't if you guy experienced it. I have also Intel Dual Core and Core 2 Duo but, sorry I still don't have Quad Core. So I prefer AMD rather than Intel its my choice.

my intel got fried, first was the video card then motherboard then power supply. i use AMD x2 4600 now, it been running for 3 mos now, Amd is good for gaming, so now i guess you know the difference how AMD can improve graphics compare to your intel. Put them side by side.

Sorry for you Intel. Yes, i notice a graphical difference between intel and AMD. Conclusion: AMD is much better!

I prefer AMD. I like the price and the performance. People seem to use AMD for overclocking. I just like AMD because I can put a computer system together that runs what i want it to for cheaper than if i went with intel.

AMD is much better than Intel because of the Price (and quality).Intel is good too but expensive.

AMD is cheaper and stable now. Not like "previous AMD" got too many problems. So if want to buy a processor, can think about AMD.
