    Hello and welcome aboard!

    Not having used that motherboard, I can't say for certain that it will work without issue under Linux but most new motherboards work just fine.

    Occasionally, you might have trouble with certain drivers not being included in the most recent kernel just yet, but even those devices will begin to work after the next kernel release, or two, and kernel updates happen quite frequently in Linux land.

    Some users report issues with ATI graphics chips, but others seem to be having no problems. I'm personally a fan of nVidia based graphics. USB3 has been available under Linux for some time now.

    You can see where the motherboard has been tested under Linux here:
