Presumably a gig of ram as well?

Also why the retail CPU when you are buying a HSF? Just curious if the retail is cheaper or what (its happened before).

oem- original equipment manufacturer (i think)
cheaper, shorter warranty, no hsf
meant for system builders (vodoo, alienware, dell...) not for individuals, but for processors it is pefectly fine, especialy if you plan on overclocking (which voids the warranty anyway).

To connect it to the mobo the mobo will have to have a firewire header. If its a decent case it will have some instructions on what each header does, with your mobo book you should be able to hook it up.

As for which mobo I'm also looking at an A64 in the next month or so, I was looking at some gigabyte boards as they seem to have a lot of options and a good reputation but I don't have any personal experience yet.
