i think nvidia is just more stable regardless...i see a lot less happening with them in the issue of errors and melt downs...minus the 7900GT card..

Ive always had AMD pcs, well not always i once had a 486 sx 25 intel, but hey does that count ive always prefered them and think they out perform Intels, especially when u consider the price difference! Intel have gained some ground back tho recently, But thinking about it, the only reason ive ever bought AMD is that ive always been on a budget up until recently and i cud never afford an Intel chip. As for the gfx, im an NVIDIA fan. only ever had one ATI and that blew up.

I'm mostly an AMD guy, mainly because I've never really been fond of dual-core anyway, and my AMD keeps me at 75FPS at the lowest in all the games that I play; if it is lower, it's because I have all the settings all the way up while running a (1) 7800GT: it's the video card holding me back from maxed settings. 75Hz is my monitor's maximum refresh rate, so anything beyond that is completely unnecessary. Sure, the Intel Core 2 Duos would get me tons and tons of FPS maybe and better benchmark scores, but I honestly couldn't care about that. Someone's always gonna have a better benchmark score unless I hit the lottery and buy a million dollar computer, then overclock it like mad. Maybe I'll sell my computer and get a dual-core computer once they actually start getting some good programs/games that use them, because by then there will be much better CPUs on the market, and everything else will be considered obsolete.

And as for NVIDIA/ATI, though I used to be an NVIDIA guy, now all I really want is best bang for the budget. I guess you could say that I'm more towards NVIDIA because I've got a 7800GT in my computer and am really pleased with it thus far, but I may upgrade soon whenever I get the money, if I get the money. And I don't really have a preference as to company, but I'll go with EVGA because that's what I have.

I like Intel, and ATI's new stuff is crazy. Their dual x1900gtx beat out nVidia's quad-sli 7900gtx, and their r600 looks even more promising.

All I have to say is, wait for AMD and nVidia's new stuff. It should be no surprise to anyone when the 'other' company releases a better part. It's always going to be a power struggle. In fact, I'm going to go ahead and say that AMD will most likely hold out on quad-cores, not to be the first, but to stomp intel's design into the ground since the current C2D is far superior to their current AM2 solutions. We'll see if my prediction holds true in the near future I suppose.
