Yeah that would be the best thing to do. You shouldn't need anything special in your PC.

The OP has most likely misunderstood what he is getting. 1gb connection for $20us is crazy cheap lol. Im moving over to fiber in a few months and ill be paying $100us for a 30/30 line.

Im glad you can read. Others cant seem to understand that there are ISP's in other countries that are able to bring Fiber to peoples homes for less than what most of us pay here in the States for 20Mb connections.

As what Crazy said, you'd be fine. As long as your router has gigbit ports, your onboard nic is plenty.

Apparently you haven't been watching the headlines on OCN. Many places are utterly destroying the states with speeds reaching far beyond what we in the US could afford for way less $$ than what we are getting for the same price.

Would i need a killer nic to use fibre? or would my mobo's lan port be enough?

Yes you would need the hardware to support the 1gb connection, most newer Nics do support this however, I guarantee you will need a router/hub and modem that supports it as the connection has to be 1gb host to host. If you wanna use this for home same rule applies every device has to be 1gb compatible. Your on board nic may support this but its pointless if nothing else does. If your just using it for internet then you should be fine for your desktop assuming the modem can handle it, just read the manual; also you might have to set it up in device manager.
