Re: AMD Build in progress
Well, will you ever SLI or crossfire? If yes, then 790 for sure. If not, then the 770 should be fine.
Open box is awesome. Worst case scenario is you get a board without sata cables or a backplate. Email the manufacturer and they will either give you one for free (ASUS did for me) or sell you one for like $5.
