I was a huge AMD fan for the longest time. I still have a K6-2 450mhz that while hasn't been powered on in a couple years now still worked last I checked! My final AMD box had a DFI Lanparty with an X2 (don't remember the speed). I switched over to Intel with a Q6600 and now a 3570K. Due to work I need the extra horsepower (will upgrade to the 3770k soon) and AMD just doesn't have performance that I need anymore. Add to that the extra heat and power consumption and it takes them right out of the picture for the higher end chips. Wouldn't hesitate to go back to AMD if they ever make a comparable product though. I've always been a fan of the underdog and AMD has made some great chips.
