AMD right now.


if IBM ever makes x86 chips that rock like the PPC970/G5 then yeah, I'll plan on purchasing an IBM chip. I'll definately be grabbing the new Via Mini-ITX board with the IBM-made chip when it becomes available.

AMD's rock especially their 64 bit machines which i may purchase soon (1600 mhz FSB)!!!!!!!!!!!!

but i will wait till after monday when intel and amd introduce their new chips which are supposed to kick ass and bring the price of current chips down by 30%

I've been starting to hate Intel as of late, they're just pushing out products so they can compete with AMD, just because they have their 64-Bit CPU out. I'm running on a P4, but planning to upgrading mine to one of them slick 64-Bit CPUs AMD has got. The problem is, should I hit the AMD64 or the AMD64FX. Same applies to nVidia, just rather pushing out useless products just to compete. At last AMD and ATi have been listening.
