At present I believe you will get more for ya money if ya go down the AMD route. But if you're into things like video and audio encoding then your better off with an intel cpu.

I think both manufacturers produce stable chips and in all the recent benchmarks AMD has been beating intel hands down. Just look at current reviews of systems and you'll see very few with an intel processor in there.

Both are perfectly stable, the AMDs tend to be a bit cheaper hence their popularity.
