Seti says> Intel cpu's don't go kablooy. The Intel cpu chips have built in thermal protection that will throttle them back and allow them to cool down or just shut down. Now I build and beta test a lot of gear and from time to time I run the cpu without a heatsink. And at 180F or better, I get throttled back or shut down. But never ever ever lost a cpu chip due to heat.
AMD on the other hand has NO INTERNAL THERMAL PROTECTION. It will continue to run hot and hotter till it melts.

amd = cheaper then intel my furry friend . They can both do both, but many gamers do prefer amd for games because they do offer better architechture that results in better peformance in games. I see a huge difference from my p4 2.6 ghz to my amd 2.2 64 bit.
Jeeze you damn skippy you're gonna see a difference. The amd is 64 bit while the Intel is a 32 bit. That is an unfair comparision.
This is the main reason you guys burn me up so badly with these threads. You make unfair comparisions. You go off about how great and wonderful amd 64 bit cpu's are while comparing it to a P4 32 bit cpu.
This is bias...
