I like to show my respect for the ways and religions of others by not working on any of those days that might be special to anyone.

The underlying question here is "Are you an AMD fanboy or an intel fanboy". 2 people are AMD fanboys and one person is an intel fanboy so far.

The question is nothing other than that because there is no basis.

Currently, there are more well-priced AMD processors in the under $200 range than intel. Intel of course, can still compete in this range with their cheapest core i3 and a few celerons for the under $50 range. The socket 1156 celeron is too high priced for it's performance though. If you can find a core 2 duo or quad or extreme on sale, it would still be a good price but most of the non-sale prices are too much for the performance.

All of intel's icore 5 quad and 7 quad, of course, are more powerful than anything AMD has to offer, hence the price. But, the phenom IIx4 processors at under $200 provide close-to-i5/i7 performance at a more affordable price. The $300 1090t, quite frankly, is not worth the price. Yes, it is priced right for those who need multi-threading but a 2.8GHz 1055t is a full $100 less at 87.5% of theoretical performance. The 1090t is 1.5x times the price.

My point is that, without a basis, no one in their right mind can blindly say "get an intel" or "get an AMD".

Although I hate to be hypocritical, I do much prefer AMD heatsinks and the way they clip on, though.
