Ok so i got an Intel 4 board. with Intel CPU. its about 5 years old now...but i turned it on and it started to smell like burning computer parts and well it turns on but no screen. So i think the cpu is fried.
So..if im buying a new CPU i should just get a new mother board.
what do you guys suggest? My friend swears by AMD..but i want to know why.
what should i get?
price range is about 400 for a board and CPU. Everythign else in the comp is good.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon... BMW FTW

even though people keep on pushing me to Intel, i have always been an AMD fan, and even the pentium 4's, i still see problems w/some of my bro's and friends' computers, like freezing and sometimes randomly running very slowly, i would get an AMD 64 if i were you, and also, they are much cheaper than the Intel, so you may save yourself a few bucks

I started out with Intel and over the past seven years of testing this and tryin that i have noticed Amd does Perform alot better and will last alot longer is used correcty (ie: overclocking etc..). Great chips and much better ones to come!
to be quite honest, i have never had any reliability problems with AMD or intel.
i have amd since their 386's clones up to my Athlon 64 venice, and i have had intel chips from their 8088/6's all the way up to the Pentium 4 northwood in my laptop. well, one problem. i had an original pentium 60mhz that had the FPU error, but they replaced it for free.
