Yes.. I have bought 4 Motherboards open box and have had only one of them that had a problem with.
The problem was in the bios and it was messed up so I RMA'd it and they sent me another one. It worked fine.

But if it is only 20 bucks then go with the new one.

easy:

1 do you need the esata cables, crossfire, driver cd and such or whatever else it comes with(it's on gigabytes site), if yes dont get the openbox since it maybe just the bare board.(hard drives generally come without an esata cable)
2 If you plan to resell later on having all the stuff that goes with it helps later on
3 dunno if gigabytes warranty starts from the moment you buy it or when the board was made, if the latter you may get a shorter warranty period.

IMO $20 isnt worth it, but I saw some boards earlier that were $60 cheaper. Thats a deal.

For $20 i would just go for a new one. I got my X48 dfi open boxed. I never had many exp with open box, but I got all the accessories except NB HS fan clips.

However, you still won't regret it. Warranty is still there and comes with most if not all accessories IMO.

Referring to some boards I saw earlier looking for an upgrade for myself.

awesome deal IMO

Another awesome deal

Not for you in particular. As I said, $20 wouldnt be enough to justify buying open box IMO, but a big discount like these would make open box deffinately worth it.
