I have the choice between buying the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ OEM, which doesn't come with a warranty or fan, for £75.20, or the same CPU only the retail version, with a heatsink & fan and a 3 year warranty for £79.90. With the first option I would have to buy a fan costing at least £15.
This might sound like a stupid question, but which one should I get? I am thinking about the quality of the fan/heatsink, but this might not matter if there is a 3 year warranty.
Thanks for the quick responses. Looks like I'll be going for the Retail version then. It actually saves me money because I don't have to buy a separate fan. I suppose if anything did go wrong after the warranty I could simply replace it with a different fan anyway, but I will probably have upgraded again by then!
