Nah, no need to clean anything, your opinion was perfectly perceived as that, 'his' case is different because you don't know if you're talking to a forum member or an NVIDIA representative xD

AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, any option is nice and the person you should care about the most in this case... is you, as you're the one who's gonna enjoy the machine. Let the others bite their own dust, so... to each their own

And now... back on topic, here goes my two cents:

Sandy Bridge vs. Zambezi? I think Zambezi will be the victorious one.
Sandy Bridge E vs. Zambezi? I think Sandy Bridge E will be the winner there.

I honestly want to get an i5 (which I can finally buy given I got my salary recently) but I'm gonna wait until Bulldozers come out. When they're out? In MY case, depends... if Intel drops the price on the i5 and (let's say) I can pay 160 euros instead of 183? Assured buy. If not? Whichever CPU fits the 95W (no way I'm going 125W... today, tomorrow and... plainly said... NEVER) TDP point with the best performance.

(but something 'tells' me even if BD ends being the winner, I'll go Intel this time, for a change. BUT... we'll see)

Unless it's a complete flop or uber expensive I'll be going with a Zambezi, 16GB of memory, and Fedora for my development rig
