You don't have to spend a lot of money and buy an expensive Video Card to get things to work right. I could download, shrink, convert videos,watch TV(Tuner Card installed) and watch a DVD with no video jitters or cache reload. Intel has done it again. A low priced board with high quality performance. Best of all, all SATA, no IDE, No VGA out, only a DVI, and HDMI out. DVI output to my HP 24", and the HDMI to my 65" HDTV.

Best motherboard I have every owned. Blu-ray playback @ 1080p using and Intel e8400 processor is @ 25-35% cpu usage. I fitted the motherboard with 4GB Crucial DDR2-800 1.8v Cas6 memory and my system is running smoothly. I had one problem. (I also had this same problem with a DG45FC motherboard I bought.) Sliding the motherboard into the I/O shield is very difficult. The prongs on the shield interfere with seating the motherboard. Takes quite a bit of effort to get things lined up correctly. Other than that everything has been a-okay. I also installed the Consumer IR module that attaches to the internal headers and it operates great. I use bluetooth for keyboard and mouse. I have no wires anywhere on my desk. Great, great, great, absolutely great!
