    The only difference is that you won't get the fancy box.

    actually, the price you found isnt the cheapest.....if you go to buy.com, they have it for $159.95 (i hope its the same card) and you can use a $30 off $150 coupon thats currently avaliable.....(go to www.techbargains.com for coupon) yeah, its only a difference of a few dollars...but buy.com charges tax....if the place you found does not charge tax, get it there....if they do charge tax, go for buy.com...oh yeah, buy.com also has free shipping.....

    heres the link to the card: http://www.us.buy.com/retail/product...255334&loc=101

    Wasnt there a bit of hoo-harr about differences in clock speeds, between retail and oem. Only with radeon cards.
    I cant remember which has the faster clock, but ATI kept quiet about this, and folks was in uproar cos there vid card was not clocked at the speed stated.
    Dont know if things have changed, but if I were you I'd look very closely into this.
