I never understand what is meant by this question. As in, are you expecting it to be missing some features or run slower? Windows 7 is Windows 7 is Windows 7. All that matters is the license, which determines how Windows 7 may be used.
The fact you bought it from eBay makes me very weary. I'd be willing to bet, it was used before, and you will have to jump through some hoops to get it activated through Microsoft. OEM software is usually not allowed to be sold on eBay. I've tried a few times in the past to sell Office OEM that were still sealed, and have been given warnings from eBay...including having my auctions taken down.
If it was me, I'd cancel the transaction, and go buy the license from a legitmate source. My local MicroCenter sells them.
