No you just need to match the board with the processor. Keep in mind you may need to reinstall windows when a board dies as the underlying components that windows was installed on have changed. THis tends to be MORE of a problem when changing processors than motherboards but it isn't unheard of for motherboards.

So all you really need is a board that supports your processor which may be any of mutliple chipsets.
