(sorry to curve topic) And until Intels new line up of CPUs, they've sucked compared to AMD chips. They've emmitted too much heat and often overheated without much of a burden on them or in other words, they were inefficient, which is where AMD excelled because they produced fast and efficient CPUs without overheating. And yes Jayhawk, I built PCs so I know what I'm talking about.
And Musikmann, just because all the big names in PCs are using them doesn't mean they're great. Intel's were considerably cheaper than AMDs and AMDs weren't as prominent either.
But the new Intel Chipsets are actually pretty
You mis-understood me, I didn't mean to imply that you said anything was wrong with Intel - you know internet and email, a lot of things are misinterpreted by it's very nature.
I think you "hit the nail on the head" when you pointed out that the Intels were considerably cheaper than AMDs - I didn't realize that.
I was only trying to say that AMD has worked well for me, but that most of the major PC manufacturers (read assemblers actually) were using Intel. If, as you say, that Intels cost them less, then the laws of economics are in play again! In other words, to Hell with quality, if A costs us less than B, we will use A, no matter what the consequences might be.
