  1. Proceed to stick a AMD cpu in and tell him it's Intel. :) Maybe even change the POST screen to a text one with Intel CPU info, etc. lol. He's brainwashed, unfortunately. AMD for low budget.

    Let him know LGA775 is dead. AM3, on the other hand, is alive & kicking.
  2. He asked me to build him one because he seen mine was so fast. I told him it was AMD hes like 'what ?' then we had a long arguement and then he told me get him one but i want a intel cpu i told him 'If you want a low budget machine mine was $750 i can get you the same thing' Hes like 'I dont want the Phenom II' i said 'why' then guess the rest...

    So i guess i can try to get him but if he dosnt hes just getting the E5200
