OEM vs Retail CPU

which one should i get and which has the better warranty. I was thinking of getting it from newegg.com, but the retail version doesn't list the special stepping instructions that the OEM version does. Anyone know what i should do?

  1. Retail has a longer warranty.
    There is not much difference in performance between the two. Get the OEM because its cheaper, you could use the extra money to buy a better HSF.

  2. OEM and get a Dragon Orb 3
