whats the difference between these 2 cpus?


this cpu

and

this cpu

they seem exactly the same to me, but one is cheaper. could it be that the cheaper one is OEM? im quite confused. i dont care if its OEM, its considerably less and i have some heatsinks to spare.

please let me know if you know.

thanks a lot.

The latter, more expensive one is actually in stock. That's the difference.

If you check around the internet, you'll notice that places with Opterons in stock cost a bit more than places that don't. It's just a trend in the whole Opteron craze. One possibility is that AMD is charging more to retailers who want them, thus they must raise prices.
