Nope. That's pretty much all marketing. You may need to manually set the speed, voltage and timings in the BIOS, but you should do that with any build.

That's a good one (it's what I'm using), but it doesn't have USB 3/SATA III ports, so it's less future proof. You would also need to buy a graphics card then, as it doesn't have onboard graphics.
