Say you buy something like an OEM motherboard. I understand that it will only be the motherboard...no cords or anything, but they still provide a box, right?
Ehh that depends.
Sometimes something says OEM, but its rly a bundled item. Which means it comes with one other thing. This most often applies to CD/DVD RW drives and the bundled item is the driver/burning program. (Disc)
But, for the most part OEM means just the item in an anti static bag/container.
So yea, if you find an OEM motherboard its a good bet that nothing comes with it and its in an antistatic bag. But it could also come with the Driver CD.
But Ive also gotten Bundled items with the screws and cables within the anti static Bag, and also gotten items that Say OEM but provide screws and sometimes (Like stated above) a Driver/program disk.
