That could never be. I bought my card in a full boxed set... How could it be a dell oem version? Even the picture on the box is the same card, so that rules out swapping cards by dealers.. I don't think this is a dell car, or at least i hope not.. If it is then creative is cheating. How can they sell an oem card, which has been downgraded, nicely boxed up potraying a SB Live Digital 5.1 card?
