I'm don't think you'll get anything with it, since it's an OEM. It's just the product itself.

I think the X1950XT is a little better. An X1950XT overclocked to XTX speeds, can almost come near an 8800GTS 320mb

X1950XT performs quite a bit better.. Don't know why you're comparing them since there's a pretty big price difference..

Wah... $125 for an 8600GTS? Seems a little fishy to me. Good deal though if it's not a scam.
