Default Asus P5N32-E Alienware OEM?

Anyone know if Alienware OEM products are fully functional or is there something wrong with them. I came across the ASUS P5N32-SLI SE DELUXE for a nice price, but it is an Alienware OEM (comes with all accessories). Wondering if it's worth the purchase for under $130.

Edit - It's the ASUS P5N32-SLI SE DELUXE, not P5N32-E

For just about the same price, you can get the new Gigabyte P35-DS3R, which I've been hearing is a master overclocker.

Ya, I just realized though, that the ASUS has only one IDE. I was looking for 2 IDE slots, and am pretty limited to the 650i. I was under the impression that was the P5N32-E, but I misread it.

The P5N-E SLI has 2 IDE slots. And is at the $130 range.

Yup, that's what I will probably go for, or the MSI P6N, heard good things about both of them.

Why do you need 2 IDE slots...IDE supports the old school primary/secondary arrangement on the same cable.

Both my HD's are IDE at the moment (7200) and so are my optical drives. I see no reason to get a new DVD burner just for SATA, and I don't really feel like backing up both my drives right now. Although I might for for a SATA drive, haven't decided yet.
