I believe it's because retail is for chain stores (ie. Best Buy, Staples, etc).

Just my guess. It seems to be true, so unless someone can prove me wrong, that's correct.

I think it's kinda silly myself, but the other day when i bought a 200GB harddrive for 60 bucks, i couldn't resist! I would take OEM over retail any day because i already have all the cables i'll ever need, and if i buy a few more mobos, i'll have even more.
