AMD makes great chips. As long as you're not looking for the absolute fastest thing out there, now is a great time to find bargains on AMD processors.

whats the software youll be running ..

ive been reading alot where if you are doing 3d apps that the AMD might crash on you. it just doesnt have the number crunching capabilities... but if you are doing alot of freehand with Painter and illustrator that the AMD will do the job great.

I would have to disagree.

In my experience, AMD is every bit as stable for all 2D & 3D software applications as is intel.

your Experiance does trump my reading ... and i could be wrong ... though i do have a friend who works at a Industrial design firm and ive been told that the amd systems there seem to crash alot with one of thier programs .. but i think the program is called Rino... cant quite remember for sure .. i was drunk when i was having the conversation with him .... come to think of it .. being drunk and then having a conversation about CPUs ..... wow we need to slow down .
