Summary: this board has one of the most compatible chipsets, as well as exceptional onboard video and ease of use. especially for the price. almost all operating systems have native support for this board, including Mac OS X. this board is a favorite among hackintosh enthusiasts.
Summary: Intel makes great motherboards. The DG31 is no exception. It is one of those "end of life" products and new models are always coming out. Anyone who wants one of these should purchase soon.... prices are always based on supply and demand.
Summary: Good MB, check specs carefully. I've seen people whine that something was "wrong" because they did not know what they bought. (Check the RAM specs for speed.) ALWAYS flash the BIOS of any new MB. Or at least check to see what they offer. Intel is active in keeping the bugs out of them, but you have to be a little pro-active and "help"... [...] Discontinued, but currently in stock. (2/14/2010) (Used with an Intel E8400 CPU.
Summary: On the face of it this MB seemed like a good deal for a basic build. If you wanted to upgrade in a couple years you could dump this and the CPU w/o much loss. But the one I received was DOA with some video issue (nothing out the onboard video or via a PCI card). Apparently this is a common complaint so I would order 2 or 3 and hope one of them works (send the rest back).
Excerpt: Не шумит, не греется, никаких хлопот не доставляет, что называется "поставил и забыл". Влазит в компактный Mini-Tower, а я люблю компактные корпуса. Отличная модель, под до сих пор самый распространённый 775 сокет.
Pros: Компактная, есть неплохое встроенное видео (как-то сломалась видеокарта, пару дней пришлось сидеть на встроенном видео, хорошо что оно есть), надёжная, тихая, ХОЛОДНАЯ материнская плата.
