I think we can let it go. I will watch it but if it does turn into a flame-a-thon I will close it.
Still not seeing any votes for PowerPC or ARM yet.
BTW, a vote for ARM is technically a vote for nVidia since nVidias CPUs are ARM based, like Samsungs and Qualcomms.

Yeah I was tempted to put powerpc myself because my old imac g3 graphite still cranks after 12 years, I love those old powerpc macs, but I had to go intel, its all I'll buy now, even my first intel which was a pentium 4 prescott 3.4ghz which I still use now, plays mod warfare 1 and doom3 awesome with a 6670 radeon and 2 gb of ram

I am a amd fan boy, but i hate it when people think arm is good.
I will vote for x86.
x86 is awesome.
It is the future.
ARM has no place here, ARM is so fragmented, they have quad cores which are slow as hell.
ARM needs to be destroyed.
nom nom nom..

Even in some highly threaded software a Core I5 2500K out performs AMDs FX 8120/8150, the more cores just doesn't work when they're so weak. Most 3DS Max benches show I5 doing better for example, Blender too.
I voted Intel although all 3 of my current PCs have AMD chips, I felt Phenom II was competitive on price until Sandy Bridge came out. Intel clearly has the better architecture and superior manufacturing capabilities, AMD would be SOL if Intel ever decided to make an affordable 6 core part.

My comment regarding POV-Ray, video encoding using H.264 codec, and 3D Max are based on the following benchmarks between the Core i5-2500k and FX-8150 from Anandtech.
I think there are a couple more apps that the FX-8150 performs better than the Core i5-2500k, but I didn't bother listing them because I don't really care.
