help with motherboard.... possibly OEM?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok... my family's new rig, i'm going intel, E6420....

this was the original mobo i picked cause i was in a hurry...
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813188017

but now i'm probably just going to go with the ASUS P5N-E SLI....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142

but i also see on newegg, the same exact mobo... just OEM...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131142R

i've never dealt with OEM stuff... it says open box... so... are there any major drawbacks if i'd go with the OEM over the Retail one?...

OEM generally means no driver CD etc...

I have purchased an OEM Open Box motherboard from newegg before and you will most likely not get any CDs, cables, IO Plate, etc. There is a good chance it will just be the motherboard itself put in and anti static bag and shipped in a generic brown box. The item work fine though. You also have different return policies when it comes to OEM.

You going SLI, if not you could stick with the Ultra... Also let me know how that Ultra is cause I was actually looking to buy the XFX and wanted to know it's capabilities.. and perhaps buy from you

eventually gonna go SLI later on, which is whyi'd like the p5n-e... and sorry, i should have made myself more clear, i didn't actually BUY it yet, it was just the one i chose, so i don't actually have the ultra right now... but from what i've been reading and seeing, the ultra is a pretty nice mobo... just no sli or crossfire, which is what i'd want for the longrun
