    last 3 rigs with Intel chips i have had in the past have burned out or broke within a year
    the last 3 AMD chips i have had lasted quite awhile
    What were you doing to the intel processors to make them burn out in a year? rofl

    nope they just simply burned out, therefor i don't really trust Intel processors
    same reason i don't trust Acer brand is because almost everyone that i know that has had an Acer/Emachine has had nothing but issues with them right out of the box


    Msi, Toshiba, Hp, Asus, Nvidia, AMD are brands i know and trust because so far they never let me down

    Ya know, I've been doin this for a lot of years. Used both AMD and Intel, and can honestly say, I've never had a processor, from either manufacturer "just burn out" after a year. Or ever, for that matter. I still have 10+ year old processors from both manufacturers that still work.......in fact, the only time I've even heard of a processor "dying" was because of heat (bad mount), someone was overvolting the crap out of it, or someone installed it wrong and bent pins.

    I don't think that he's going to change his mind on the parts he wants at this point. Unless you gift him an I5??

    I don't care what he uses to build his rig. I'm just addressing his disdain for Intel based on some pretty flawed logic.

    Don't forget the thermal paste! :P

    Seriously, run a temp monitor software from time to time to check if everything is alright. I've never had a CPU fail on me, and my computer career started with a Commodore 64.

    We have 85+ servers at work, all intel, zero fails.
