I stuck with AMD for this: Affordability and performance. The BE cpu's are the bomb....they oc very well and run relatively cool. Of course I'm using an after market cooler which helps alot. And with the "latest" AM3+ socket I should be ready for another cpu upgrade next yr....AND some crossfire goodness!! Gotta love AMD systems.
