Yeah, pretty much. Just dont get a crappy board. Stay away from ECS, Jetway. ASUS is the best, go with them. They work wonders with Intel's too. The other thing you need to pay attention too is the form factor. It's not really an issue, but it is if you want to fit it into an existing case. It's either doing to be an ATX or an M-ATX. M, is the smaller of the two.
