In the last 3 weeks this is what I've bought open box:

2x ASUS P8P67 Pro $85 (One was bad and send it to RMA, if they don't fix it it goes back to newegg).
1x Asus VH238 23" LED 2ms monitor $85 pretty much new and works great!
1x ASus VE247, I think 23.6 LED 2ms $83 (have not received yet).
1x ASUS 580 DCII $235 so far it works great and I think it came with all accessories
1x ASUS 460 768mb $70 (have not tested, will be in a future build).
1x ViewSonic 24" LED slim monitor $129.99 (Works great, got this for a customer build).

+ taxes and recycle fee

So far I have gotten everything in new looking conditions pretty much and with most/all accessories. The only exception was one of the motherboard, but the same thing could have happened if it was new maybe. Hopefully ASUS will fix it, but I have my doubts because behind the motherboard by one of the wholes for the mounting of the CPU cooler it had a small light scratch in one of the traces. I'm not sure if that damaged the board and that's why it doesn't work. But if ASUS fixes it, I'll be a happy camper.

Newegg doesn't price match OB items.
Well, in my experiences they haven't.

Would probably have been bigger if I had seen this prices before. I've checked once in a while, but never saw that big of discounts until I got the 580 which got me addicted and look for open box stuff which I'm not even going to buy, but I just look at it... lol. Also now I'm hunting a card for my bro and just feels exciting, however I think I gotta stop because I've stopped doing some things just so I'm alert if something comes up. Besides the fact that I don't really need anything now or I should say don't have that much cash left for upgrades lol.
