Intel makes your CPU; why not have them make your motherboard as well? The BOXDG45FC is an LGA775 board supporting Core 2 Duo, Pentium dual-core and Celeron D processors. You can add up to 4GB of DDR2 800 memory to support the operating system. The mini ITX form factor makes it a great choice for HTPCs.
The motherboard is designed to support the advanced features that today's power users are looking for. It has an 8 channel audio system with an optical SPDIF port and 5 analog audio ports that support Intel High Definition Audio. It also has 6xUSB, 1xFireWire and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

File sizes are getting larger, especially for audio and video, so we need more secure ways to manage our data. There are 6xSATA ports, including 1 eSATA, so you can hook up plenty of drives. Since you have plenty of available connectors you can use one drive for the OS and software and have extra drives for data. Or you can set up a RAID 0, 1, 5, or 10 array.
