The backplates are annoying to me, I never use them. Stupid rf spring clips piss me off.

If I go with this Open Box board i'll grab a 7900GT instead of the 7900GS... I dont really NEED the backplate and driver disk, as I dont stare at the back of my case much... What would you guys do? 7900GS and Retail P5B-E or 7900GT and Open Box P5B-E???

If you are patient and realize you may have to RMA that open box...I would go the GT route.

OEM Open Box should be new and unused...
Open box is a nother story, returns, and such.
Why you don't get at least a backplate with an OEM Open Bod is beyond me! They come with one, they have to or how would the egg build bare bones with out them! I've seen case lot OEM MBs by the hundreds and all had back plates and disks but the EGG don't provide them

Are you fixed on getting that specific board? For the same price, you can get a new Gigabyte GA-965P-S3. The only real difference I see is the southbridge where the Asus supports RAID, and the Gigabyte does not (however, you can do RAID on the secondary controller over the PCI bus)

Ive been seeing that people have been getting slightly better OCs with the P5B and I do really like Asus boards. I have seen the P5B-e6300-Crucual DDR667 setup all over the place and it seems to do really well... so thats what I was going off of.

All over the place? You sure those are not P5B Deluxe's? That's the most popular one. The P5B-E is not out that long, and I have not seen many members here using it.

Thanks Duke

Doesn't that P5B-Deluxe have only one major thing over the P5B-E? It seems like the only difference in the second PCI-E slot and a little different audio.. I'm sure there are minor differences but are they important enough to hinder the OC potential in comparison?

Here are some P5B-E users, look at the top of the e6300 chart.. http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1075792

Also looking at this Open Box P5B deluxe wifi http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131028R because the option for SLI (with tweaked drivers) sounds good..
