I used to be an AMD fanboy myself, but as time has gone on, Intel has given me far less issues between CPU, Motherboard selection, and peripherals, drivers are easier to maintain, and all of the "troubleshooting" I used to do on AMD pc's got so time consuming I spent more time trying to solve problems with my PC than actually using it. I only do custom builds but it's not like I don't know what i'm doing. I always research my parts and make sure I select components that are compatible based on the latest QVL's. Intel the last 5-6 years have just done better for me in my experiences with needing high performance, high-stability workstations and desktops. I'm not a rich [censored], I'm actually quite broke, but my freelance work requires performance parts... and well... Intel and Nvidia deliver the best bang for my buck.
