Expect the motherboard on it's own without accessories, I/O shield etc as PeterStoba said and you shant be disappointed. There is a chance that it might be faulty though. Can always send it back if you're not happy with it
I've heard a lot of bad stories on the open box items from new egg. I don't know about a mobo I would do a graphics card maybe sound card, but not the mobo. I would be ****ed not to have the backplate for the case.
im still waiting to boot her up for the first time. Im waiting for UPS to deliver my cd/dvd drive and hard drives. If you go to the build logs section of the forum, i have pics of the build under the name Project BMW.
Yea UPS and their "guaranteed 3 day" deliveries...
UPS tends to be really good with my packages so I'm not going to bash on them. Pluse I get everything delivered to work since it's a business address I tend to get all my packages early in the morning.
