I am looking around for parts to make a new PC. What is the general thought on OEM products? I have found a few vid cards that are OEM. I am also looking for a CPU Athlon 1.2ghz OEM. The MB I will get retail so I have the software. I have bought OEM before and have never noticed any performace differences. But before I buy a OEM CPU I want to double check, there may be a general knowledge that OEM's are bad and I just don't know or it could be that they are fine and work just as well (I hope this is the case). Thanks.
