I think that if the hardware you buy doesn't explicitly support your
operating system and version, a few simple google searches will avoid
you a bunch of hassle later.  I do not think 'don't worry about it,
anything you pick out will work' is good advice to be giving to linux
newbies who don't have the troubleshooting experience for when things
don't go as planned.
