    Unless it's really new - it could be that you'll not need anything.

    There's certainly a lot of oldish posts with that mobo referenced.

    Boot the livecd/usb and see what gets recognised is the best course of action.

    Simply download the iso file with Ubuntu. Make a boot CD or USB stick! Unetbootin is good to make a bootable USB stick!

    Then run Ubuntu live from the CD or USB drive. During this session, you will get a feeling of Ubuntu. On most computers Ubuntu will run without any separate drivers. It is built-in

    Sometimes, you need a proprietary driver to get full resolution and speed of the graphics. Often you need a proprietary driver for wireless LAN, and for the printer.

    So have fun trying Ubuntu and come back if you have questions or problems!
