So no cables or anything included?

Isnt that what retail is? it includes cables and shizzle, so if its OEM, it doesnt have those cables and shizzles included?

Thanks

Yea, it will just be the product itself. For example, the hard drive you are ordering is OEM. It will just be the hard drive, and that's it. But your motherboard, I assume is retail, should have the necessary cables included for the hard drive.

OMG...... e6320 is coming out in COUPLE months???????? wtf... why are they taking so long to bring these out?? Does anyone know the release dates for the e6320 or q6300??

Anyway about your computer.... I dunno but I would get the e6600, if you see all the bench marks for FPS games or any other applications the e6600 lags only behind intel itself ( e6700 and the e6800 extreme or w/e). If you look at the e6300 or e6400, there are like 5 AMD processors that outperform it. Food for thought...
