I bought OEM from new egg for almost $1000 and was quite shocked when doing a google product search to see it for $699. The caveat though is that it is a processor upgrade for the HP. What are the differences between HP and OEM and can I safely return mine to get the HP and save a few $$?

Dude, what are you talking about? You bought OEM what?

You could build a whole computer for that much. A 2.7 ghz AMD processor is only $63.



Are you on crack?

HP upgrade is for HP systems and warranted by HP. AFAIK, no HP system means no warranty. Nothing else - they are both bare procs in a protective shell.

or did you miss the math class where they put one plus one to get two as well as the class on how to have proper etiquette in a forum?

This thread is a perfect example of why I avoid forums. A simple question with a simple answer gets two obnoxious and combative replies that never answer the question. A total waste of bandwidth...

Another is the totally stupid rules like the "flooding" rule: 3 messages in FIVE minutes is not a flood of anything! ...but no, I have to waste my time to wait TEN minutes before I can reply.
Arggggggggh!

buh-bye.
