it may not come with the I/O shield and isn't guaranteed to, all you are guaranteed to get is the motherboard, I got an open box motherboard once and all that was in the box was the motherboard, I've heard of people getting everything, just as if it was a new retail motherboard, it's a crap shoot really, but if you don't need any of the accessories they usually are a bargain...
