for your Type of work AMD's 8 core cpu is more suitable - if possible wait for FX-8350 or get FX-8150 @ 11.3k and Asus M5A88-V EVO @8k.

I saw the FX-8150 processor Ii is fine good. I have a small doubt one of my friend is using AMD Processor which has problem of restarting when the applications are higher. So only small confusion in AMD. Because of it only I am planning to Take Intel. I want to know how is now the AMD processor . the restarting problem is now been rectified or still it is there.......

Point the fingers to else where.

Poor PSU
Poor OC settings
Poor cooling used
Dust or many other factor.

load on system may slow it down or worst freeze it but wont cause what you have said.

^^ these are common issues but three's some sort of compatibility issue when using a AM3 mobo and AM3+ cpu especially in Turbo mode though a bios update may fix the issue.

@ rockers - if you want to buy an AMD cpu ( preferably AM3+ ) get a AM3+ mobo using AMD's 9 series chipset.
