Howdy,

Does anyone know the reason for the price difference between the
following two AMD 9950's?

HD995ZFAGH BOX RETAIL $179.99

HD995ZFAJ4BGH OEM $289.00

I have been told that the OEM should be the cheaper of the two.

What am I missing?

Thanks Much

Have no idea. How about a link to the site?

Perhaps the OEM includes a motherboard... AMD has recently dropped their prices (again) as their top in Quad parts don't sell as well. AMD's best market area is under $100 CPUs.

Recommendtion: Get the cheaper one ;)

Ok Compiler,

Thanks for ur help.

I am thinking of building a system using AMD all the way.

I have always been for the underdog.

The trick is to find a board that is 100% compatible with the Phemom X4 CPU (power issues). I'd recommened checkout out Phenoom support groups as well as posts on newegg.com of people having good results with the chips.

Most AMD 790 boards in the $125+ price range SHOULD work.
