Default Gigabyte EG45M-DS2H

On the test bench today, we have Gigabyte's latest Micro ATX offering, the Intel G45-based EG45M-DS2H. This board carries the typical Gigabyte enthusiast charm, but also caters towards those looking to build a media center. But how does it stack up against the other Intel mATX boards we've tested recently?

You can read Rory's exhaustive review here and discuss it here!

Unhappy forgot one thing ...

This is a nice review, with one little flaw:
the GMA X4500HD HD-acceleration won't work under Windows XP.
...just in case somebody (like me) wanted to use this OS...:-(

Movie acceleration should work just fine... did you download the latest XP driver for the X4500HD located here? http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...=2996&lang=eng
