no

It just has lots of options. But once you understand them it will be easy

That's really the key. DFIs (especially the LanParty series) cater more to advanced users who know how to make magic with the BIOS settings. But anything can be learned. Just do your homework, make sure you understand the basic concepts, then don't be afraid to experiment and make mistakes; failures are often the best experiences because you get the chance to learn something along the way, you know?

Of course, asking lots of questions of the many DFI veterans will go a long way.

Heck, maybe a DFI newbie like me might even know an answer or two as well...

Good luck!
