Actually, I'm just finishing a second build. I have a Intel with crossfire and an AMD with SLI, that just got me wondering about all the combinations and what might be the most favorable.

OK, that makes sense. I hadn't built anything in a while, so when I decided to build something new I figured Intel processor with an Intel chipset was a sure bet as far as stability. I have since learned how much more economical AMD can be considering the performance. (I was strictly AMD years ago for the same reason) So, for economy, performance, and versatility (overclocking) an AMD processor with an AMD chipset and an AMD GPU would seem to be favorable. It would also make sense that stability should be solid with all the major chips produced by the same company.
