All it means is that somebody had tried it, didn't like it, and placed it back in the box. They're obviously going to check it for missing pieces, but you could say it's "pre-opened", not pre-owned.

Yeah. I just did it two weeks ago or so. Get them off the site. Be weary, they don't usually come with I/O plate, etc. However, it depends how the person sent it back I believe, because when I got my open box video card, it came with cds, and when i got my open box processor, it came with the fan and stuff.

I dont think the warranty is as good either. I think I saw the same mobo a couple weeks ago and almost bought it too, but ended up settling for an Asus A8N series model that was just a little more new so I could get the full warranty.
