    The SE is better than the XT. Definatly go with the SE even if it might be a little more than the XT:cheers:

    Simply put, at the moment it was, as I didn't have a PCI modem yet, so I was stuck with what MSI provided for about a week. (Which was the 44.03's which aren't bad :) )

    As far as which is better between the XT and SE model. Well in short it depends. Just go to newegg and compare the core speed and the effective memory speed. Many are the same for the XT and SE model and even if they are not the core speed is 390 vice 400 not a noticable difference imho.

    Ok im an idiot I admit it. But I still have more questions.

    The card I'm looking at now is a ti4600 visiontech. The person I'm buying it from calls it "OEM" with "new original driver and cd". What does OEM mean? I read on some forum it meant "dont buy", but maybe I forgot, just DCing..

    Gracias

    Original equipment manufacture ie not the retail box version, but yes the same card maybe missing cables, driver disk and/or manual. These items can usually be found on the web. Heck the only thing I ever use from the retail box is the card anyways you usually want the current driver anyways and not the ones they give you.

    No.

    One more thing pay attention to the speeds of the core and the memory at that price I think you are getting a 5700 non ultra, but I could be wrong. Just watch and know what your getting. Trust me I just bought a 5900 nu in december and went through all this stuff.
