    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.
