  1. Yes they will all be compatible, check out

    That is a nice board within your budget requirements.
  2. Tokencode's suggestion is excellent but for less money

    or

    may do just fine. (I use the second one)
  3. If you don't want to overclock, awolfe63's suggestions will work fine.

    If you do want to overclock, you'll need to spend a little more money for a P67 or Z68 board.

    +1 If you are going to buy an Intel® Core™ i5-2500K even if you aren't planning to overclock right away dont select a motherboard that will stop you from overclocking right at the beginning.
