AMD fan here!
Mostly because of price.
I build budget gaming machines and AMD is always the way to go!
My recent machine 91 year old) cost me $622 with Gigabyte motherboard, AMD Phenom II 3-core, 8 Gig DDR3, GeForce 550 Ti and later a Samsung 120 Gig SSD drive.

Runs fast with Win 7 and Mint 14.
The main reason I stuck with Nvidia is because ever since the 8800 I've been very impressed. Recently I found that Nvidia drivers run way better in Linux than AMD, so I don't regret it.

I've heard a lot of good things about Corsair power supplies. I've stuck with Enermax, but have entertained getting a Corsair several times.

What do you think of Windows 8.1?
Mint 17.3 64-bit
Wine 2.0
PlayOnLinux 4.2.10
