ATI Radeon 9000 Pro OEM vs RETAIL?

I'd like to know if there is a difference between the ATI Radeon 9000 Pro 64 megs OEM and Retail (except the price)?

I think that both are clocked 275/275. Both have a fan?

So, the only difference when you get the OEM is that you don't have that retail box that you throw away anyway and you don't have the same software?

OEM is white box w/ just the drivers(most of the time) and the retail box comes with instructions, cd w/ games, and driver disk. They both have the fan. If you don't care about the games I would have to say go for the OEM and you will same some money. Hope this helps.

You might want to make sure that the OEM is built by ATI, not just powered by ATI. The non-ATI built units usually won't accept ATI drivers. Knowing ATI's driver competence, that might not be a real bad thing though.
