    AMD is definitly the bang for your buck solution. I get plenty of performance out of my AMD systems. :bigthumb:

    AMD, personally. I just like how their processors run at lower clock speeds, while still getting the job done. They've just got better architecture, in my opinion.

    Although, I've read that the Athlon XP's 2800+ to the 3000+ aren't as good a value as their Pentium 4 counterparts.

    Just what I figured. I've been Intel forever but I want AMD for my new box.

    What's the best chip and mobo for ~300$?

    not exactly better just a different architecture... Intel decided to make a chip that they could ramp the clock up faster, amd decided to make a performance chip that doesn't scale as well.

    AMD hands down, the 64 bits will blow away any intel for the price.

    It also depends on the main use for the machine. AMD usually makes for a great gaming rig. Intel does content creation and encoding faster. But then again, does a minute or two while ripping a DVD really matter when we're talking about $$$?

    I'd pick an Nforce3 based board over the via based board.... but you can't go wrong with an AMD chip at this point

    Best bang for the buck? AMD all the way. An overclocked 2.2 gHz 2500+ is not equivalent to a Pentium 4 2.2 gHz (if they had/have one) in terms of how much time it takes to get the job done.

    Wow. This turned out more one sided than I thought it would be. For the record, I only buy AMD too (with the exception of my laptop).

    In a laptop I can understand going with Intel, since they run a little cooler and Centrino is a nice technology.

    I haven't seen too many laptops offer the AMD Athlon 64. There are some, but I wish they were more mainstream.

    I just read on Neowin.net that AMD is really starting to push the Athlon 64's on laptops, and so we should expect more laptops with 64-Mobiles in them.
