    OEM products usually have 15-30 day warranty and retail have 2 years.

    ACTUALLY new egg claims all of their stuff to come with the factory warranty on OEM products....so I dont know

    OEM is good because most things are cheaper and all you miss are the pretty boxes and extra games that come with some of it.

    As for the OEM it depends on the reseller.
