All my early builds were with AMD chips. My first Intel was only after I started working for Intel (IM Flash Technologies. An Intel and Micron joint venture).

But I have to say, my Intel builds were always trouble free. My AMD builds always had a hiccup. A bad one for me was a short in the computer case rest button. That's not AMD's fault.

I've never had a bad chip but I would occasionally get blue screens on one of my AMDs.

The computer I have now has been absolutely amazing. This is a 1st generation i7. It has been fun reading the reviews of the stuff I'm buying with people talking about their 3-4 generation old CPUs like they are dinosaurs. I'm getting a 7th gen processor to replace my 1st gen processor and I play most games in high and ultra high settings and stay at least between 30-60FPS. I expect more with my new system, and I'll have a larger (24" to 27") monitor with higher (1080p to 1440p) resolution. I hope I'm able to take advantage of my monitors higher (165Hz) refresh rate to some extent. But it almost feels too soon to upgrade.

Maybe I should have waited for the Zen processors. I guess I'll see. It'll be a double kick in the nuts if I really like what AMD does if they also have a good new generation of GPUs because I really liked the BenQ Freesync monitor I was looking at and if I was going AMD I'd get an ATI graphics card too.

Assembly has begun!

Wish I didn't have to go to work today.

So I'm doing good so far. My monitor is amazing. No dead pixels, back light bleed is pretty insignificant. HUGE compared to my old 24" monitor. The higher resolution is noticeable.

Have a lot of the new stuff assembled but will need to finish up tonight. Will post some pics soon.

i had 3 intel cpus so far
q6600, i7 2600 and i7 3770k

to be honest the jump from 2600 to 3770 i did not notice unless i did some overclocking and cpu intensive stuff.
1st gen still rules they still cost a pretty penny on 2nd hand places here.

before these ui had amd only and cyrix in the 90's(or atleast i think it was called that)
i will just buy the mobo and see how it does as a 2nd desktop.
