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 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: A decent board for the price, though be aware it has no parallel port so all your hardware is going to have to have SATA data connections. It does provide power with both Molex and SATA connectors though. It provides a minumum amount of documentation, and if your lucky the labels on your case will match the labels on the motherboard. If your not lucky (like me) you close your eyes, plug it in, and hope it doesn't blow up (It didn't).
