So, which one you guys prefer and why, that's a question I always wanted to hear people out!

That's for my future PC, depending what you guys have to say about it!

I would go with Intel, as it has better optimizations for a PC, and really don't hear about Intel CPUs being space heaters :P

For graphics cards, I would go with NVidia, I have always heard great things from them. They aren't plagued by many issues and are quite good. I could trust them.

For a new gaming PC? I would absolutely go with Intel Core I7-6700K 4.00 GHz, a dual GPU Nvidia card, a nice SSD. Say 16 GB (s) DDR 4. And you're all set!

I guess it depends what you want to do with the computer. I'm not sure what the cost-to-performance difference is when comparing AMD to Intel. And this time of year if you can get a super deal on computer components or built computers in general then you can be motivated to get one over the other.

For a futue gaming PC in a couple years when mine stop working correctly. I myself have a NVIDIA geforce GTX 970 and a intel core i7-4790k CPU @4.00GHZ, and I like them alot, but you know, I wanted to know what people think of AMD Product.

AMD is for budget builds, which you aren't really doing. Maybe a couple of 980s from NVidia or some late and great new Graphics card will do the trick. AMD processors are plagued by heat issues. Idk :P

amd is considered a budget build, yet the 8350 (83xx) can keep up with the i7 in many games (we are talking 5 fps difference)

as far as GPUs, Amd typically uses more power, and can run hotter (would not call it 'plagued' by heat issues) but i prefer them. Word is that the new driver system coming give the fury a boost so big that its beating the 980 ti - time will tell.

I honestly have had very few issues over the years with AMD gpus.

Makes sense, and AMD GPUs are alright, I would always reccomend them, but you need something cheaper to remain within an alotted money amount, go with AMD GPUs

I always go with Intel and Nvidia myself.

BUT the landscape could change in a couple of years. AMD made the best chip PERIOD back in the days of the Athlon/Athlon XP.

But Intel took the lead and AMD has not been able to keep up. Who knows though, they could have a killer chip in the works and we could all be shocked!

ATI (before they were bought up by and renamed to AMD) even held the lead for a while. They had a better product, better drivers, better everything... but lately it's been Nvidia all the way.

I don't think AMD will be able to catch up. I would be super surprised if they could :P

Acarzt, honestly, I think MD was slingshotted forward in the GPU world when they mass produced HBM memory on a graphics card first. That was a huge step for them and a gigantic accomplishment. Because of it, they are much more known and the Fury will be a popular card.

Ehhhhh I disagree, for one, they have always had a cult following and most people already know about them, but avoid them because Nvidia makes a better product.

HBM is cool and all... but it doesn't equate to performance that is leaps and bounds better.
