I've never enjoyed my experiences with AMD systems. I used to have a P4 and it worked flawlessly in the Windows environment. I've had to repair a lot of my friends AMD systems and my old P4 rig never gave me any problems. I juss built my first AMD system for x-mas (shown at the right) and I've got to say I'm very disapointed. The multitasking with my FX-55 doesn't even begin to touch the Pentium 4's HT technology. I've also noticed lag in my mouse whenever the CPU comes under even the tiniest bit of load. It's not major but it's noticable to my eyes. I can't install windows using the NVRAID, the NVLAN is supposedly 10/100/1000 capable speeds and it only gives me about 1mb/s whereas my P4C800-E Deluxe mobo's LAN was giving me 3mb/s speeds (and every other comp in the house has speeds @ 3mb/s), I've formatted about 5 times since I've got this damn thing due to driver issues with my graphics cards, Windows keeps giving me warnings about corrupt hard drive files etc. etc. etc. I mean if its not one thing that goes wrong its something else.
