    Agreed. It doesn't look like it will work. This might be a good excuse to buy some Lilliput DVI monitors when they come out.

    Hi,

    Ive bought this board and i also discovered that the DVI port is a DVI-D... i was also planning to connect to VGA screens to this board...

    Is there a way around this without installing another vidoe card or buying a expensive converter?

    Would this plug work? http://www.kvconnection.com/ProductD...00A&Click=4099

    I highly doubt a digital to analog conversion happens inside that plug. If you find out it works, let us know. 20$ wouldn't be a bad price for that.

    I personally use DVI-D in my install. I know you are trying to get a cheap adapter, but I will educate you. First off, DVI-D can not be converted from the PC to analog. You can only convert the screen to DVI-D. Meaning the adapter connects to the screen rather then the PC. They warn doing it any other will cause harm. Here is the one I bought: http://www.hdfury.com/. It is alittle pricey, but works really really well. The way I have mine setup is a DVI-D cable going from the PC to the rear of my car. Then the HD Fury is plugged into that cable, then plugged into a powered VGA splitter which then goes to 7 screens. Now even doing it this way, causes me to have issues. When in BIOS, the screens will not show anything and the screens will bleed. Once Windows loads up though, all is good. I know it isn't what you wanted to hear, but I spent about 5 months researching this and talking directly with IEI and AMD about my board and it DVI-D port. My guess is that its cheaper to simply use a pure digital port then to make it have to convert to analog. Otherwise I do not know why INTEL did it on this board because my main system board is made for high end multimedia applications, with X2 core, with a really good GPU and what not. The INTEL is only 1 core, and not really big on graphics, so IDK, I think it has to do with production costs.

    It isnt going to work. You cannot convert directly from the PC. You need a special processing chip to convert it to analog for the screen. The D at the end in DVI-D stands for Digital, all our screens are Analog. http://www.hdfury.com/

    Ok Ive tested it. HiJackZX1 is right

    http://cgi.ebay.nl/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...EOIBSA:NL:1123 doesn't work on the D945GSEJT (just tested it myself)

    At least i can say that for a few euro's i know for sure

    I am not gonna buy a adapter/converter from hdfury.com... it costs more than the motherboard itself!

    i assuming the biggest draw to this setup is size? theyre talking about the 1a power draw, which is nice, but for 2a at idle and 6a full load you can use a late model mATX setup with a 35w processor- its not that much larger, not that much more power draw and a hell of a lot faster.

    You are right, these converters are expensive. The HD FURY is actually the cheapest I could find at the time. I think I bought mine for $115.00 off ebay. I bought this for my expensive KINO though, which ran me about $300.00 with all components added. I didnt have room for a second graphics card, so I had to use the DVI-D port. I guess its safe to say that the INTEL is best for people that dont need multi monitor applications, unless they do not mind adding a graphics card.

    I do not think these boards will ever go over 2amps if a Powered External hub is used. On my proposed setup, the keyboard and mouse are powered by the main system, via a KVM switch. So its basically just a 1 usb port, HDD, and thats about it. So I expect about 1.5 - 2 amp draw or less. This board is very very good if you plan out how you power the USB devices.

    Well i also tried to install an Club 3D Radeon HD 2400 Pro... but when i started the computer\motherboard i didnt get any video on any of the ports (bought PCI card as well as the onboard video ports)

    When i took out the PCI card everything seems to be working fine again...
