It can't hurt to try. Newegg is awesome about dealing with open boxes. If something is wrong with it and you talk to customer on the phone you can get a full refund with no restocking fee. You might be out shipping at most, but I've even had luck getting that reimbursed too if you make a big enough deal about it.
I can vouch for open boxes having the possibility of working out great as both my current motherboard and video card were open boxes and work flawlessly.
