I have been using AMD and ATI for gaming for 2 years noe and I am not changing.

And is AMD better than the good old Intel?

I would say I haven't seen any difference, I know the i5 is unkillable but I still like AMD better specially that it gives you more then what you pay for.

The i7's are superior at the moment to what AMD have to offer. Intel CPU's have higher bandwith and more instruction sets.

AMD at the moment are the poor mans choice of CPU, but the CPU you got is not bad at all, good clock speeds and core speeds.

I would have went for a single 58xx card rather than 2 5770's. Woulda came to same price.

well i had like $1168 so i opted for a good AMD i don't have enough for an i7 and i got an ATI beacuse i want dx11 i just don't like Nvidia's GUI for their driver over clocking is easy in this. And well i like ATI better i didnt even have enough to get my computer i had to bum 97 dollars off my mum for it
.

i do understand the monetary compulsions but..for me..Intel and nVidia will remain favorites...because i've never..and i do mean..never..had a problem with those 2.

although i have a peculiar problem i cant overclock them in crossfire because if i start any 3d program it freezes and makes me restart. And sometimes programs freeze(rarely ad least now) but i figured if i have the fans at 60% and factory specs they work i played a huge battle in men of war and got 50-60 FPS.

Indeed, but for the "poor man's choice" you can get their top CPU, a damn good mobo, and RAM for less than the price of a single comparable Intel CPU.
