I was thinking of going AMD for my next system. This post solidifies that decision. Hopefully when their next-gen arch is released [1] it won't be as buggy as Intel's -- which seems like a fairly low bar.

I've just build AMD system for myself based on FX 8320 and so far I love it. I am developer and I am constantly running multiple applications (http server, db, multiple chrome tabs) which are using multiple cores. FX series also supports VT and many other features http://cpuboss.com/cpu/AMD-FX-8320 on top of that usually mobos are supporting 32/64GB RAM even in cheaper boards, and it's enough for casual gaming, not bad for used £90 CPU with CM Hyper 212 EVO cooler
