The Intel BOXDP43BF is an entry-level ATX motherboard based on Intel's P43 Express northbridge chipset. It features an LGA 775 CPU socket and support for up to 8GB of RAM. Additionally, the BOXDP43BF sports a PCI-E x16 graphics expansion lane, Intel HD Audio Technology with support for up to 10 channels of audio and integrated Gigabit LAN.
