Hey all... i have been looking for a couple new parts for my cpu. I am looking at a new HD and a new graphics card. In the product descriptions at newegg.com, I see the letters OEM (7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - OEM) at the the end of some graphics card an HD descriptions. What does OEM mean?. and how do i tell if my computer has OEM?

Thanks you for your time,

also OEM products do not have what comes with the retail (i.e.: the fancy box, some optional wires and software, things of that sort)

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
