    Yeah if you're on a tight budget AMD is quite good.

    Yes there is, but if you already have a fully loaded first gen i7 system, not much point in rushing to 2nd or 3rd gen. They of course do have much better ocing headroom, and improved imcs, so there would be a benefit to upgrade. I'm waiting to buy a used sb-e system next so I can use all my ram + more. A 2600k/2700k would be even better than what I have, but I'd only be able to use 16gbs ram, so I'm waiting......

    Core i7 3930K for my new build
    Phenom II X4 960T in my girlfriend's rig
    I5-2450 in a Dell XPS8300
    2.2Ghz Core2Duo in Dell Inspiron 1545
    Athlon64 X2 5600+ in an old HP I got for $50
    Pentium 4 2.8Ghz in old Dell E510
    AMD FX51 2.2Ghz @ 2.4Ghz in my first self-built rig

    Kinda runs the gamut

    My processor wasn't on the list (FX 8150), but I have a Athlon II x3 in the spare parts bin, so that's the way I'll roll.

    voted for intel i7...
    I kno that amd also produces great processors these days..some with good cache memory....but imo... no processor can match the quality and durability of intel...

    Some say that intel charges way high for almost same specs as other processor...but one thing i can be absolutely sure that when it comes to making processors intel is way ahead of amd....

    Amd .... if it continues to release processors like phenom series... then may be in a year or two would surpass intel(cost and performance)

    But these days CPU's cannot be compared like they were before, now you have to factor in the efficiency of the architecture, performance, cache etc..

    You can compare CPU's in the same family using the GHz and Cores method but not when they come from 2 different manufacturers with completely different processor designs
