The Intel DG45ID is equipped with one PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot for a discrete graphics card, a 32-bit PCI and pair of x1 PCI Express slots for peripherals. Only solid state aluminum capacitors are used.

Six 3.0Gb/s SATA II ports are tucked into the corner of the motherboard, beside three USB headers, one firewire and the motherboard's front panel header. The six SATA II ports are powered by Intel's ICH10R southbridge, and support RAID 0, 1 5 and 10. An eSATA bracket can be plugged into one of these jacks. The Intel ICH10R is hidden behind a small passive heatsink.

The Intel DG45ID motherboard supports up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, at speeds of 667/800/1066MHz. The memory capacity with 64-bit versions of Windows is 8GB.

The DG45ID can run its FSB at 800/1066/1333 FSB, with support for most of Intel's socket 775 processor line.

Like most motherboard manufacturers, Intel has opted to use passive heatsinks on the DG45ID. It's best to pair this motherboard with some form of active CPU cooling or a system fan in order to keep the northbridge and southbridge cool.

The DG45ID can support both DVI and HDMI output. DVI has a maximum resolution of 2560x1600, while HDMI can output at up to 1920x1080 resolution while carrying audio output.

Let's take a quick look at the BIOS and then it's off to the benches!
