I was about to buy another graphics card and noticed the "Retail" in the name:
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 WindForce 3X 3GB PCIe DVI/HDMI/2xminiDP - Retail

Anybody knows what it means?

It's the Retail version. Which means it's in a colourful box for bragging purposes with a handbook and a driver CD and (for other hardware some cabling) and there may be some coupons for games in there too.

The alternative is Bulk. Which means you get the video card in an antistatic bag. There may or may not be a flimsy plain box around it the bag. That's it. No extras. No CDs. No handbooks. No coupons.

This, the OEM/bulk is for people who want a card in a computer - system builders normally. The "retail' edition is for the shops/end consumer.

if you don't know what is retail, i don't really think you should be mining.

If you never broaden your horizon and ask questions you won't learn anything new.
So that comment was totally useless.
I asked the question because I didnt know the meaning. I am trying to learn the theory so that I can mine...
