for business clients, also said some AMD CPUs are not getting as hot as
comparable Intel CPUs.
He and many other people, I know, use AMD/nForce based computers for audio
In my experience, it´s just important to combine a good CPU with a good
chipset on a well manufactured mainboard. Whether you decide for Intel
