I’m going to be buy a new gaming PC to play some on line games. Now I need to know what is better, AMD based systems, or Intel based. Which one is better?

Hmm. I'd generally stick with Intel because Intel CPUs have instruction sets that AMD doesn't (SSSE3, SSE4.1 and 4.2), but I know next year Intel and AMD are coming out with new lines of CPUs, and AMD CPUs will finally apparently have these instruction sets.

I'd wait until those platfroms come out before I upgrade.

Yep. But I edited out the link, so now it looks just silly. :) Silly bots, thinking that admins can't edit sigs...

But it's a good topic, so I kept the topic.

For what it's worth, those Core i7 2600Ks kick ass, and it's what I'll be putting into my new build. Shame that Intel had a problem with the chipset that's forced all motherboards to be recalled, though...
