    It's hardly a secret that Intel is currently the most competitive CPU vendor in terms of performance, and while that might seem fine on the surface, where pricing is concerned, it's not. If you've built a PC in the past couple of years and have focused on Intel, you've likely noticed that pricing almost never changes, and once again it's probably not difficult to understand why. Where there's little competition, there's almost no incentive to drop prices.

    Which is why I will always buy AMD CPU's for my extra machines in the house, where I don't count on insane performance. Intel will only be used on my gaming PC because of the prices Intel offers.
