OEM is the same product without the original box or documentation, and often has less of a warranty, if any, than the retail product.

I wouldn't reccomend buying an OEM motherboard or processor but an OEM hard drive and such is fine..

An OEM OS is absolutely fine..

http://www.oemdisks.biz/

Buy any OEM disks from there.. I have and its so cheap and wonderful.

Bundle Special #1:
Microsoft Windows XP Pro +
Microsoft Office XP Pro

$89.95

Its really awesome.. and thats what I did.

If you want just XP, only 70 bucks..

It updates.. its the same as having a real retail product, just without the warranty of the product, and instructional manual.. which you don't need anyway.
