Hello,
I'm looking for a motherboard fit for gaming and compatible with the Intel Core i5-2500k (Socket type LGA1155).
Also, what hard drive is better for gaming, SSD or SATA? :D

BTW you confuse terms: a SSD is (literally) a Solid State Drive, whereas SATA is Serial ATA, an interface for communication between the CPU and devices. There are 3 SATA levels: 1, which is pretty much an anachronism, 2 which provides 3.0 GBps transfer rates and SATA 3 which provides 6.0 GBps transfer rates.
Both SSDs and HDDs (Hard Disk Drives) typically use SATA 2 or SATA 3 for interfaces. Some use SCSI, but those are usually high-end servers and other special builds.

Good Luck.
