Whats the difference between these two?

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


The thing is Id like to buy my cpu from amazon, better return policy instead of cpu replacement only policy, and i was wondering if it matters about the sku? or are these the same?

I am purchasing a ASRock 870 Extreme3 AM3 motherboard, so is there a difference or will they both fit?

SKU = stock keeping unit. Which will vary from store to store.
You want to compare AMD Part numbers like: HDZ955FBGMBOX

You're right;
HDZ955WFGBMBOX
HDZ955FBGMBOX
In this case it looks like one is a typo.

@ TigerDirect it shows HDZ955FBGMBOX in two places and HDZ955FBGIBOX in another place.
