I definitely don't regret going AMD.

I bought the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ when it was $159 with a warranty extension from Newegg and 6 months later it dropped down to $119 on special, now back up to $139.

Then you can find the FX-8350 going for as low as $179 on Amazon.

I look forward to Steamroller and when Excavator comes out I'll still have this box in a Corsair 650D humming along maxed out.
