Sorry dude, the OEM will still spank for $167... he'll end up getting 6000+ in 3dMark2001, the OEM Radeon 8500 is the same as the retail card, just a shorter warranty and lower default clock speed...
I should explain that the new architecture of the radeon card allows for greater bandwidth, meaning even at same clock speeds it will move more data... and the Radeon 8500 runs all the tests, which also bumps the score...
