$AMD so over ten years ago I bought my first pc with my own money, AMD machine that I sold after 4 years of use. Just came to visit family and it's still in use! Over the years I've done some maintenance, like upgrade to SSD, install a discrete GPU, and upgraded to Win10. Twice the CPU bracket cracked and found it on eBay for a few bucks. One of the latest upgrades was maximizing the supported CPU to get faster clocks. Sure AMD had some lackluster CPUs over the years, but they've finally upped their game and Intel can't compete until at least 2021. Bullish.
