The GA-EP45T-DS3R is an ATX-form motherboard from Gigabyte, using the Intel P45 chipset architecture.  It supports up to 8GB of DDR3 1600 SDRAM, which can be overclocked to 1900 MHz.  The DS3R features dual x16 PCI-E slots for ATI CrossfireX-capable graphics options.  The board has a built-in Trusted Platform Module chip, a set of software instructions that prevents unauthorized access to both hardware and software systems.  The TPM system encrypts stored data and system information and can only decrypt it when supplied with the correct password.  The TPM system is used in conjunction with the BitLocker Drive Encryption utilized in Windows Vista, as well as a number of other software applications (including Digital Rights Management).  For further information, please see the Intel P45 Chipset report.
