That one would be just fine.

If you don't mind a micro ATX board (same size as your current one), I would look at something like this one,

Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3 AMD 870 Socket AM3+ 7.1 Channel.. | Ebuyer.com

One thing this one has over the one you linked too, it is AM3+ ready (black socket instead of white). Makes it easy after they come out in the next month or so if you're so inclined to upgrade to the new Bulldozer CPU's. That isn't to say the one you linked won't be the same as Gigabyte has that one updated as well,

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-880GA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

as well as quite a few others,

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+

just a matter of them showing up in the stores. If you want to go with the one you linked to I would contact ebuyer and see if it is the newer version of the board or still the AM3 version.
