I ordered a graphics card and I noticed that it didn't come with the box or anything and it's not used. But I DID notice it was an "OEM" item. Could that have anything to do with it and what is OEM? I found a few definitions but they still kinda confused me.

Thanks in advance.

They were supplied to computer makers in large qantities in plain no thrills packaging with no software, cabels, or games bundled with them. Just the bare peice of hardware.

Its still new though right? It's not like it's been used and then sent or anything? It just doesn't have the box correct?

correct, it still should be new, just not have the fancy packaging or driver CDs/cabels.

Only on RARE occassions will you find any difference between an OEM product and a retail products except as stated by others packaging and enclosures.
