Does anybody know what the difference is between an OEM card and a Retail card (apart from having no accessories)? and what sort of money would you guys pay for each of these cards?. I'd like the All in wonder for the added features, but the Sapphire would be cheaper. Any help or comments you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
That is the only difference; an OEM version doesn't have the extras and stuff like that that the Retail has - and is cheaper through that.
Personally, if you want an ATi, then I would get the All in Wonder - it is more futureproof and as far as I know better in most senses. Depends if you want to pay the extra - cause there isn't a serious difference anyway.
