Intel DG45ID Media Series G45 micro-ATX Intel Graphics HDMI+DVI 1333MHz...

Summary: Take your home entertainment to the next level with Intel's Desktop Board DG45ID. Built in the micro-ATX form fact, it supports Socket 775 CPU's including Intel Core 2 Quad and Duo processors along with dual-core Pentium and Celeron CPU's and Celeron 400 chipsets. Up to 8GB of DDR SDRAM system memory can be installed in the four sockets. With a front side bus of 1333 Mhz, 800, 667 and 533 Mhz DIMMS are supported.
Summary: I would have to agree with the other reviews regarding the audio issues, and the latency totally working my processor. The board works pretty decent for all of my computing other than dedicated home theater use. I am still trying to be able to switch my audio output between the SPDIF and analog, with no luck yet. Based on the fact of a home theater PC, avoid this board.
Summary: I bought this MB about a year ago. Its worked fine for me. I use it with my home theater set up. Never any issues. I just upgraded it...still works fine. Heres my set up: Windows 7 Home Premium Intel DG45ID Motherboard Media Series Intel Core2Quad Q9650 CPU 3GHz Kingston DDR2 Hyper blu RAM 8GB Hitachi hard drive 1TB / Seagate hard drive 400GB LG Super Multi Blue Blu-Ray Disc Drive Antec NSK2480 Desktop Case
Summary: I bought this MB in Spring 2010, assuming that it would be stable, and work great. Up front I knew that you would not be able to over clock the processor, or that it wouldn't take legacy devices (PS2 mouse, keyboard, etc.), At time of release, this board's biggest problems were with the chipset, which is just too limited, and unstable and limited drivers. I'd consider myself a seasoned PC builder having put together from scratch over a dozen machines.
You can find much better for this price or a few extra bucks

Summary: I saw a lot of good reviews on this and some less favorable ones also, but this one seemed to fit my needs. I do use this in a normal computer and not a video box, so that should be noted before taking my advice. First off, I am not taking away stars for what this board does or doesn't have. It does not have IDE, PS2, or regular VGA and nowhere does it state that it does so in doing my homework about the types of drives and peripherals I would need, I was already aware.
Summary: After I burned up a board with on-board nVidia graphics due to a bug in the proprietary driver, I said no more and went looking for a board that I could run purely free software on. I chose this board after reading a lot of successful reviews. On initial install of sidux running 2.6.32, everything ran smoothly. 1080p video played smooth as silk. But when I upgraded to 2.6.33, suddenly my sound stopped working.
