I never thought about it until I read the post above. I guess I am a pack rat too. I still have my dot matrix printer in the attic.

I used to keep a lot of stuff around...but then wanted to get the house and such cleaned up and realized that I wasn't ever going to use all of these old boxes...so I've parted with most of it. I just don't see the need for the clutter of storing all of this stuff. And then i watch TV shows like Hoarders and am happy about my decisions.

TV box is in the attic above the Garage and the Xbox box is still in the closet, it stayed were it was.

most of the boxes were on the top shelf of closet,

Actually, I am not using those mobo's anymore, since I no longer have them. The newest one was the P5Q Pro which I sold a few months ago to go with an i7 setup.
