i was thinking about buying the MSI GD-65 for my new i-3 gaming build. it supports x8/x8 pci so its sli certified. however, this board is 160$ including shipping. theres also an open-box for 113 including shipping. both are from newegg

you guys think its safe to buy an open-box motherboard?

The first link is the new, the second link is the open box

thanks for the insight

An open box means that the board has been previously sold and then returned for whatever reason. The original price is $159.99 and the open box item is $104.99 (almost one third less), meaning the box is probably missing everything that originally came with the board from the factory, except the board itself. Probably no I/O Shield, HDD cables, manual, application CD, etc.
