I suggest paying a bit more and grab a better motherboard, like this Asrock one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... As for requirements, beside a good motherboard, you'll need a decent aftermarket CPU cooler, too, like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
