I believe so if they're the same socket. I'm not EXACTLY sure, but technically speaking, they're all the same motherboards,simply with different chipsets, and others having more expansion slots than others.

not 'any', I would suggest getting an original BIOS chip for that board and replacing it with that. Different systems require different BIOS's (CPU's for one), and if you have a bios chip with the wrong BIOS, your heading nowhere.

Different chipsets let you do different things eg overclock your cpu, run usb3.0, run 2 x pciex16. You need the hardware on the motherboard to then run these features

I thought that it would not really matter too much with Chipsets and CPU support. When I go to the Asus website every BIOS version for the Socket 1155 are the same.

EDIt. would it matter if the motherboard was used but working

Before you go selecting my answer as best answer, take a good look at the other ones too. They provide some pretty good reasons.

To answer your question, it shouldn't. Unless the used motherboard had some sort of defect on it that didn't render it completely useless, it should be fine. Again, before running off and potentially getting screwed, take a good hard read at the other answers. Like I said, "I'm not EXACTLY sure."
