Yes, Ubuntu 12.04 will work just fine and includes built-in support for Intel 10 GbE controllers, which are used by your Supermicro AOC-STGN-i2S 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI-E card.

Open-source drivers are in fact included with the Linux kernel, as ixgbe* modules, so you should never have to install drivers separately.
