My next project and i need your input - which route should i go?? Intell or AMD

Go with AMD as its cheaper than its intel equivalent. But depends on what you want the system for. I've read that Intels are better at crunching numbers and high CPU intensity tasks such as video processing etc. AMD for overall system performance and games.

Agree with surfsteruk, in the tests I've read about AMD are better for games, Intel have the edge for video processing for everything else they are about the same. The main thing that differentuates between them as far as I'm concerned is the cost. AMD processors are a lot cheaper than the Intel equivalents and are therefore better value.

amd for me too

Used both, and cannot see much difference. On AMD at present, only because it was slightly cheaper than Intel at the time.

I'm the same as spuds,

I have 1 laptop 6 months old which is intel, my two desk tops which I built myself, one is and intel based and the other is AMD (the newer one)and I can't really tell the difference between them, they are all used for identical tasks and each carry out these tasks easily. The only real difference I noticed was the actual cost of building the 2 desktops the AMD being far cheaper to build.
