7. Why ATI or NVIDIA, why Intel/AMD?
NVIDIA has always been my first choice, because of the graphics quality and performance that their products offer. I chose Intel, because of the immense cache and over clocking abilities their processors offer, not to mention with great temperatures even at speeds over 4.0GHz.
