    If u look from close up, they are different.

    On the PSU power cable there is a sticker, that says 12V or PCI, check that.
  5. 8 pin PCI Express power cable - look at the edges.

    What OEM means?
  35. does it worth the 10 dollars? it makes any difference?
  36. OEM - u can use that on your PC, but u are limited to the small HW changes.

    This is the one u want to get @ x64bit flavor.

    can you explain yourself? i dont understand sorry....
  43. You can upgrade any components or peripherals on your PC and keep your license intact. You can replace the motherboard with an identical model or an equivalent model from the OEM if it fails. However, if you personally replace or upgrade the motherboard, your OEM Windows license is null and void.
    Windows activation is typically not required when Windows is preinstalled by a royalty OEM. Instead, these copies are pre-activated at the factory. Your copy of Windows will be automatically reactivated if you reinstall it using the media or recovery partition from the PC maker, it will not require activation.
    At the time you purchase an OEM copy of Windows 7 to be preinstalled on a new PC, you must choose either 32-bit or 64-bit Windows.
