AMD has their power consumption
by Ray Harinec / June 2, 2005 8:03 AM PDT

rather well under control with their 90 NM chips. Intel is having rather big heat problems. Can't run their Dual Core at the same speed as the single cores.

O' Hum.. has and will always be a debate...

which is good in our capitolistic society...competition (do a google to get millions of comments).
Want to spend some $$$$ for gaming get the AMD Athlon with the FX55 system. Otherwise, the Intel system is OK, and if heat becomes a problem with AMD or Intel there is always watercooling...say like the
EC-TWC-A04 External or Internal Water Cooling Solution for $149 (or perhaps the Velocity Micro water cooler).
