AMD Chips vs Intel Chips in Processors, Motherboards and Memory Posted March 29, 2014 I have just recently went thru a rebuild on my PC. I decided this time around to use AMD instead of Intel. I have a i7-2600k and a i5-2500k but I decided to build a 990fx AMD system using an 8320 FX. I am over all pretty happy with the machine I used all AMD based components on the build and even did one of the R9 280X graphics cards. The AMD system seems to have a lot less issues even at stock speeds then my Intel rigs were giving me.
