    OEM products are packed in white boxes, which includes the hardware and software and in a retail you get a nice box, hardware, software and other good stuff.

    There's also a 25/25MHz difference between retail and OEM.

    Something along those lines

    ATI OEM products are always shift at best and definately slower then the Retail stuff. I'd personally await the release of Asus's version of the Radeon 8500. Hopefully they will have their own drivers out for it.
