No plans on overclocking right now.
Initially I went with AMD because my first swing at picking out parts left me nauseated at the prices for the current line of Intel CPUs (back when I didn't know heads or tails about performance). That and my previous attempt at a build involved an FX6300 for an am3+ mobo I already owned.
Everything was either stock price or on sale. the graphics card I actually may have bought a little bit above market price, but that's only because I had bought it for a build that never went off the ground.
