Default Re: You want to know why I buy AMD CPUs?

If people want to make comments bashing AMD, I'm willing to defend my purchase from over a year ago.

And I know the 6gb ports aren't affected, but in stock form, there's only 2 of them. I have 2 HDD's and an SSD, so that presents a problem for a lot of enthusiasts. I'm glad Intel is fixing the problem, but I wish it hadn't happened in the first place.

Mods can close this thread if they like. I never meant it as flamebaiting or whatever. I was simply pointing out the prices on newegg.
