Intel DG45ID


$125.00 Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Ideal for HD video output, plays Blu-ray movies smoothly with great detail. HDMI passes audio and video, perfect for just plugging right into the TV. Runs cool and stable, good longevity.

The Cons:No legacy device support, missing PS/2, serial and parallel ports, no IDE or Floppy, and no VGA. Limited to 1080p at 60Hz, can't support 120Hz modes. Not much overclocking ability built into the BIOS.

The Intel DG45ID is a microATX motherboard that uses Intel's top line G45 chipset. It is marketed toward the home-theater crowd, as it has integrated HDMI, and IR. It is similar to the Intel DG45ID, however the ID is miniITX, and has one less SATA port, and only one PCIe x1 slot, and no other expansion slots.
