I'd save them for at least as long as the warranty lasts since some of the time they won't even accept the RMA if it's not in the original package with all the stuff. --- http://raptr.com/badge/arleas/uc.png http://www.speedtest.net/result/2868545294.png
I always keep all of my boxes. My parents and friends think I am crazy for doing it. I keep them from collector's editions of games, LEGOs, PC parts, car parts, etc. --- Intel i7 4930k | EVGA 780Ti SC x2 | 16 GB G.Skill Ripjaw X | Asus Rampage IV Extreme | Corsair 900D | Corsair AX860i | 1TB Seagate HDD x2 | 120 GB Intel 520 SSD

The only things I ever throw away packaging for are items less than $30 in value, or the packaging just sucks and/or doesn't allow for putting the part back in easily. --- 1993 Saturn SL2 Galaxy Note 3 * 3DS XL * NX300 * VModa M80
