I used to use the hell out of AMD. It was priced right for a teenage PC gamer. From the Duron to the Athlon 64, AMD never did me wrong. But once the i7 came out I haven't touched any of their products since. So what I'm wondering is, how does AMD hold up in this day and age compared to the LG1155 series of Intel CPU's.
One of the main reasons I'm thinking about switching back is due to budget constraints and there are some pretty good bundle deals on newegg right now but they're all for AMD. I'm not giving a budget because I'm not sure what I'm willing to spend. What I'm really interested are the extra bells and whistles that come on newer mobo's but I'm a single GPU guy so SLI or Crossfire, I don't care for.
So what do you guru's think? AMD or Intel? What's going to be more stable and get me ready for Star Citizen? If I get an AMD would it be best to switch to an AMD GPU too?
