That is a motherboard for an Intel system. If you are gonna go with that one it would require an Intel I7 processor.
If you are on a budget you could skimp on the motherboard a little. Those 790FX motherboards and Black edition CPU's are more geared for people who are going to be pushing their systems (overclocking) You would be fine with a 790x or 790gx board. You also really don't need a black edition Processor if your not overclocking it. But it does offer a little more speed for a small amount of extra money.
That motherboard you posted was on the NEWEGG.CA site so the price isnt that much more.
