does anyone know what the difference is between the ATI Radeon 7500 DVI DDR 64 Mt AGP (bulk) and the ATI Radeon 7500 DVI DDR 64 Mt AGP retail.
I couldn't find anything on their site. Do you think these two cards are clocked differently? Or is it just a matter of extra software and warranty?

newegg has pictures, you can see the difference.
oem is just card + s-video cable + driver cd.
retail is card + s-video cable + rca video cable + s-video to rca converter + dvi to vga converter + driver cd + manual + box.

Don't forget to mention the Anti-static baggy the OEm comes in :)

oh yes, but retail also has the anti-static bag.
ah, newegg put oem stuff in a small brown or white box inside the fedex box, so you also get a box from buying oem.

Yep, the OEM clock speed is lowered. But you should be able to overclock it right up.

I have owned an OEM or an LE whatever you want to call it. It will come at 270/230 core/mem. More than likely It will not overclock well if at all. I could not get 1 MHZ over stock without artifacts. I sent mine back but I did buy one on Newegg.com for 89 bucks tonight and for that 270/230 will be Ok with me. I know I know it has 4ns memory but I am telling you right now...If 270/230 is not enough at the price you pay...go elsewhere. I do think the GTS-V is also a good deal for 70 at your door. The 8500 LE or OEM's come at 250/250 and mine will do 270/267.5 max without artifacts...I am gonna sell it since I really like the Hydravision but the gaming aspect didn't WOW me so I will save a hundred and sell mine. Lengthy but I am sure someone will benefit from all this.

could work after you flash the bios. I read that a lot of the 8500 OEM couldn't overclock well, but flashed to the retail BIOS and ran with no problems.
