Ok my question is what is the difference between these 2:

AMD ATHLON XP 1800+ 1.533GHz 1533Mhz OEM Socket A Palamino CPU
AX1800DMT3C
$153.99
AMD Unveils New AMD Athlon™ XP Processor; Drives Initiative to Develop New Processor Performance Metric
Add to Cart

AMD ATHLON XP 1800+ 1.533GHz 1533Mhz Retail Box Socket A Palamino CPU
AXP1800BOX
$249.99
AMD Unveils New AMD Athlon™ XP Processor; Drives Initiative to Develop New Processor Performance Metric. Retail Box comes with AMD direct Heatsink and fan AND 3 YR Direct Warranty



Obvioulsy the retail has a 3 year warrenty and a heat sink but i am getting a custom one (heat sink that is) but is there a differnce between OEM and Retail?


I need to make sure the OEM will fit my motherboard rather then the Retail (big price difference). I am getting the Abit KR7a Raid Board, the new one.

Thanks

Make sure the seller gives you some guarantee on the OEM without a restock fee. 60 days is plenty to get the system together and sorted out. If it works for a month it will likely work until it is obsolete if you get a decent fan/heatsink. I don’t think the guarantee is worth the extra money.

If Abit says it will take that processor the OEM will fit.
