If you really wanted to be picky you would get the brand based on what you want to do
with your computer. Think about that statement billies. (My machine would probably kill almost everyones here if you had them running side by side) I purchased it for my needs though not to say "mines better than yours and get into a pissing contest"
My frustration is in the ignorance of these people.
edit: billes where are you located? US or Erope etc? I'm in Au and the price of components here are a lot more then else where.
Off the top of my head. I purchased a TV a few years ago. It cost me $4000 in
America it sold for $2300 from memory. so my pricing my not seem that much if you think about that. Unfortunately we are ripped off something chronic in Australia for everything. Now with the carbon tax everything is so much more expensive now.
When you spend 3k on a system, even if you happen to forget to mention you are from Australia before
The resulting price still has no real justification. AMD advantage? what advantage, cheap pricing? In all benchmarks, AMD performances are shamed in comparison in each respected category by the Intel market equivalent. They haven't been a competitive company in the high end market for almost half a decade now. Only reason to ever choose an AMD route now-a-days is if you are on budget. But as you like to yell out about the $3k you spent, that isn't really the situation now is it. You just can't ignore proof of benchmarks, its like refusing to acknowledge basic principles of physics.
And when have I ever listed my pc specs in this topic? This isn't a pissing contest. Its a lashing at your integrity.
God help you if you decide to retaliate by posting PassMark benchmark results. Ill end you then and there.
And on the other subject, I refer AMDs all the time, several times here on TP too. Go ahead, check my post history. But as I just said, they are best concerning low budget builds.
