Im still lost... I just want a AMD 1.9. just the proc. I have plenty"o fans.. So I get the OEM.... right?
The retail version also comes with a 3 year warranty. OEM versions come with no manufacturer's warranty. You only get the 30 day money back guarantee from the shop at which you make the purchase.
Also note that there is no AMD Athlon XP 1.9. There is only the "Athlon XP 1900+", which is a marketing term for a 1.6GHz Athlon "XP" (Palomino). When you run utilities such as WCPUID you will be correctly informed that it is a 1.6GHz Athlon XP processor.
