For a 10 dollars more you could get a 780G board which would be alot better. Check out this page for bargains: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010200022%204025&name=%2425%20-%20%2450
I wouldn't blame you if you didn't care for the open box stuff, but the 740G would be superior to the 690. Also, I've had some good luck with the 6100 chipsets- Asrock in particular. The 690 chipset is well beyond its prime.
Don't have any experience with the foxconn brand, but I know that they can produce good motherboards. For budget brands, I like Biostar, msi, and Asrock. Stay away from Jetway, in addition to the bad board I bought from them they have no support. Avoid companies that cannot back their products.
