I guess if price was a bigger issue than performance I'd look at AMD but I haven't had a PC with an AMD processor in 10 years.
I hear ya last AMD chip I recall having was an Opteron 140 which normally cranks at 1800 MHz tweaked to 3259MHz on air. Was pretty high up in the world on HWbot rankings at the time for SuperPi scores. Ah the good old Overclocking days.
Sort of unnecessary now to do any serious overclocking.
Intel has always had an edge on AMD in my book however except for those very dark, very hot Intel Prescott days.
