Are all motherboard and peripheral boxes cellophane sealed when brand new? Just wondered as I'm on the lookout for a new MB again following two failures and have yet to see a mobo in a properly sealed box. The same applies for some peripherals like graphics cards etc. Every retailer I've visited including the likes of PC world never seem to have a box that looks new, allways looking like a return of some kind or graded stock. Do they seal these boxes from new at maufacture or are there billions of products flying around with no checkable history and sold as new? Chipster.
