Open-Box should be fine, but you might have to find some parts for it.

Good point. I checked the features and all the software was listed but there are a lot of little things that could be missing such as the I/O plate, etc. Better safe than sorry with such a purchase I reckon.

I was looking at stuff like this and like they said somethings are ok. A keyboard and hard drive the worst that you might be missing is the sata cable. But stuff like cpu coolers there could be all kinds of stuff missing. Just imagine getting the heatsink with no mounting hardware
