Anyone using an AMD machine for design with Adobe software? I'm thinking getting an AMD toy, but want to find out if are there any glitches, lockups, black/blue screens, random crashes, you name it on AMD vs. Intel.

AMD is powerful and can handle it. I only use AMD powered boxes.

The price of AMD's line of 64 bit processors is dropping so it's easy to find a good deal. In many benchamark tests AMD blows Intel out of the water. If you're serious check out recent issues of MaixmumPC, I can't remember the exact month but they do a comparison of AMD and Intel's chips, interesting results.

I run an AMD Socket A 1.2 GHz primary (built it myself) and my secondary box is an AMD Slot A 500 mhz (the vertical processer!) and they're both fairly fast and reliable. :)

I've been using an AMD processor for 2 years and I haven't had any problems. I mostly use my PC for design and gaming, and both run pretty smooth.

haha yes that 1.2ghz and the 500mhz fly I am sure!

But yes I have an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton
Sock:
333FSB running at 1.9ghz
Mine (overclocked):
400FSB running at 2.3ghz

I do have a volcano 9 fan I got for 12$ online which keeps it fairly cool, but I have been very happy with the performance and the ability to overclock the cpu. :).

Okay, so I'm not going to sequence the human genome in one day, but I can run Firefox, Photoshop 6, Fireworks and Dreamweaver between the two, and that's good enough for me. ;)

Yeah, didnt buy everything at once thou :) But it runs great now - i am however thinking of adding fluid cooling of some sort - because its getting pretty warm, and its a bit noisy from the 3 case fans, 1 cpu fan, and one very loud ATI x800 fan.

My husband runs an AMD 64 bit with a radeon 256 MB graphics card, the graphics on his machine are superior, I open my graphics on his machine sometimes to test them out.
I've been wanting a decent graphics card for a year now.. when I finally got the spare cash to get one, I ended up buying one for my husbands birthday, so I'm still stuck with my old 128MB geforce :(

I've got an AMD and it handles good. Never got errors. I can run every design and graphic aplication.

AMD Athlon 2400+ @ 2000MHz
512 PC3200 DDR
256 MB nVIDIA GeForce 5700
Maxtor 120GB HDD

I'd like to say that im more satisfied with the AMD processor than my Intel 2GHz one.
