Minimum Specifications for the Oculus Rift state:

1x USB 3.0 port, plus 2x USB 2.0 ports
Recommended Specifications state:

3x USB 3.0 ports, plus 1x USB 2.0 port

I'd try it out with just what you have first and then, if you're running into issues, then go ahead and install the PCI-E USB 3.0 hub. I was going to try the same thing with my Lenovo Explorer, but my old system didn't support AVX, so I had to upgrade the entire system.

Minimum specs state 1xUSB 3.0 and 2xUSB 2.0.
Your motherboard has 2xUSB 3.0 and 4xUSB 2.0.

Yes, it will work

If you just want to make absolutely sure, use the Oculus Rift Compatibility Tool from the Source. It's linked under "Oculus Rift Minimum Requirements and System Specifications". Download and run the tool.
