. . . . . . . . . . . . . All right, so let’s say you’re building an office workhorse or a college computer workstation, and you’re on a budget, it’s either for a customer and you’re building the computer for him, You might have to make a lot of them. You’re going to need something that’s affordable, something that’s future-proof, something that’s going to work with all the latest technology but’s not going to break the bank, and this is probably what you’re looking for. This is going to be right up your alley. This is the DG43NB from Intel and this motherboard is pretty much the new G43 chipset, so that’s the new, like, mainstream kind of motherboard for just regular computers and it’s bringing a couple new technologies to the field for this type of board. Those basically are PCI-E 2.0 as well as a CPU that will support the 1333 MHz front side bus. So, as you can imagine, this is going to take all your penryn processor, which is a 45nm, the more efficient ones, which are your Yorkfields and your Wolfdale cores, your 8400s, your Q60, Q9300, sorry, all those processors will work on here, no problem whereas on the previous generation of board it didn’t work at all. So you will be able to use this on here now. Now, let’s talk about everything else that you get on the board. It is Socket 775, as I already mentioned. These two dims right here, since there’s only two, you’re going to actually get a maximum of 4GB if you populate those with 2GB sticks. These are dual channels, so you can run dual channel 800MHz DDR2. That’s, again, another reason it’s going to be great for workhorses and businesses because that memory is very, very affordable right now. You can probably get four G for, like, fifty, sixty, seventy bucks, in that price range, whereas the older memories like DDR are still costing fifty dollars a G, which is very expensive Now, let me talk about some of the other features you’re going to get on this board. I’m going to show you the back, because one of the big features is on the back. Especially for businesses, they’re definitely going to want to have this right here. This is your regular old ethernet port, but this board does come with gigabit ethernet. And if you don’t know what that means, this board, or this port right here, will actually transfer data ten times faster than most of the other boards out there. They all have 10/100 ethernet, this is 10/100/1000 it’s called gigabit ethernet. You have an additional six USB 2.0 ports on the back, so that’s going to be more than enough connectivity. You also get a firewire port right there. So that’s also very useful because if you want to input stuff directly from a camera, this is the best way to do it. Moving along up here, you have integrated graphics on this card, on this board, sorry. It’s an X4500, and that gives you the ability to have two different connection types. You have VGA, if you’re using an older monitor, or, if you’re on a nice, widescreen, new monitor, you most likely have the DVI connection. That’s the latest connection and is your best bet. Up here you’re going to see two PS2s for your legacy keyboard and mouse, which are still very commonly used. And I’ll tell you what: If you’re going to build some sort of server, or you’re going to have a lot of hard drives on here, this chipset uses the ICH10R Southbridge chipset. That gives you six of these SATA ports. And I’ll tell you what: You get every single RAID option you could ever want: You get zero, one, zero plus one, and you get RAID five, which is all going to be very useful in backing up your important business documents, all your files. It’s going to be great for redundancy. If it’s very important that you don’t lose it, you should have it on more than one hard drive. If you move over here, these are all your expansion ports. You do have three PCI expansion ports, so that’s going to let you add a lot of peripherals to this computer, especially for businesses this can be very useful, you can have a raid card, a fibercard, all sorts of adapters can go on here. You also have two PCI-E X1 connectors, which again, a multitude of things can be added here. And then, finally, the icing on the cake is this PCI Express 2.0 slot right here. This will let you add a videocard if you so desired. Now, if you’re a business owner, I don’t recommend you have a videocard ’cause they’re going to start playing video games all the time. And then, finally, the last one is one additional PCI Epress X1, that is right there. Again, very useful. Like I said, you do have twelve USB ports, six of which are on the back. The rest are on headers. So let’s say you have a workstation case that has a lot of nice connectors on the front. You’re going to be able to connect as many of those as you’d like. You’ll be able to do the six on the back and another six on the front wherever you want. Also provided in the box of this motherboard you’ll get a couple of SATA cables which will help you connect your hard drives, or any other SATA-enabled devices you may have, such as a DVD burner. You get an older-style IDE cable, which you can use to connect legcy hard drives if you have. You can actually connect two drives with this one IDE cable, as most IDE cables work. There’s usually a master and a slave. And also in the box is this input/output shield. And pretty much what this does is it matches up your motherboard to the case. So this is an ATX motherboard, you’re going to fit it in an ATX case, and this will pretty much go right here. See? It’s not lining up? So pay attention. Match the holes. See? 5.1 channel audio, 5.1 channel audio. Boom. And now this’ll pretty much go into your case and match everything up. You also get included our driver disc which you may find useful, some stickers, these are actually stickers that help you figure out how to connect the motherboard. It looks confusing but don’t fear. It’s very simple, actually. And finally, you get a little card that has some pretty useless information on it. So, moving along. Actually, there is no moving along, that’s it. Check it out: the DG43NB motherboard. Again: workstations, businesses, college students, OK? You can put a quad core on here, like a Q6600, which is very affordable and very future proof, you get to use that very affordable DDR2 800 MHz dual channel memory. That’s awesome, and it will do PCI express X16 2.0, so if you want to get a video card, play a video game, do anything with a video card, you have the ability. This is an awesome motherboard, it’s very affordable and it’s a great buy right now. So if you’re interested – go get it right now. That’s it. I’m out of here, guys. The intel DG43NB socket 775 motherboard is available from the retailers listed here or if you’d like some more information, you can always type in: I69-2178 into any major search engine.

  1. i know what overclocking is, but can it overclock well. Im not a n00b ive got my Q6600 at 4ghz on air with 40c idle 65c load on a 750i chipset.

  2. did i say 4ghz? sorry i mean 3.6ghz got mixed up with my E8400 in my other rig :D. Specs for the Q6600 are msi p7n plat. 750i, GTX 260's SLI, volts on vcore are 1.5 with TRUE cooler but usually leave it on 3ghz for day to day usage.

  3. OR. It's for budget users that are not power users.
    If you can build a PC, you know a fair bit about computers.
    Otherwise, you're either lazy and buy retail, or don't know anything and buy whatever's recommended at a retail store.

  4. I love how he says on a budget and Intel mobo in same video not the best thing get a better brand for cheaper with more features and such.

  5. hey, does this motherboard support crossfire? I have an ATI HD 5770 and I was planning to get another one for crossfire, and I don't know if this motherboard will support crossfire.
