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.
Summary: I bought this motherboard, a Pentium E6500 processor, 4GB of Corsair DDR2 800Mhz memory and a Lite-On Blu-Ray drive with the intention of saving some bucks and using the built sound and video for a Windows 7 HTPC. Once I had all the current drivers loaded, it worked as advertised: DVDs and Blu-ray disks played back without a hitch; DTS and Dolby Digital content went out over the HDMI 1.3 connection with no problems, and the built-in graphics were adequate for standard...
Summary: I've been building computers since NT4, and I'm amazed how technology has come, so far. I'm specifically impressed with the Intel DG45ID MOBO. Built specifically for Media Center use. This MOBO works really well with my Vista x64 Ultimate. I watch Blu-ray, HD DVD's, and online movies. I set this up with a quad core processor, 8GB RAM (Corsair), on an Antec case. The built-in HDMI (video card) passes audio and video.
Summary: I use this board for an HTPC setup, and as such the HDMI port was a must. I run this system through an Onkyo HDMI 1.3 receiver, and find it syncs well and provides multi-channel audio with easy. Upgraded drivers (vs. what was included) help the stability. There is little legacy with this board, but I don't need that. This one does all that I need at a reasonable price.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade my 6-year-old PC after reading some good reviews on the integrated graphics technology the G45 offers. It seems that gamers and overclockers are not too fond of this board, but I don't really do either of those things, so it seemed like a good solution for me. This board will support Quad Core processors, but I went with a Core2Duo E8400 3.0 GHz chip.
Summary: É a segunda placa Intel que uso e acho essa placa DG45ID, ótima.
Pros: Facil instalção, funciona com perfeição, qualidade Intel. Aceita até os processadores Intel Core Quad. Eu uso um Core2Duo, com 4gb de ram e uma GTS 250 1 gb, mas futuramente pretendo fazer um upgrade para um Core2Quad e 8 gb de ram.
Excerpt: Costruire una scheda madre per i propri processori deve essere stato un gioco da ragazzi per i cervelloni della Intel, ma questa DG45ID è molto più di una semplice periferica per lo svago. Al suo interno trova posto tutto quello che serve ad assemblare un computer economico ma completo, di sicuro è la piattaforma di riferimento della casa di Santa Clara per questo tipo di soluzione. Dispone di cinque porte Serial Ata a 3.0 Gb/s interne e di una eSata esterna.
Pros: Scheda grafica integrata con uscita HDMI, eSata e Fireware
Cons: Prezzo non proprio popolare, ma li vale tutti .
