Choosing a motherboard

I'm upgrading to the intel i7 2600k, but I know very little about motherboards. What is the cheapest option for a motherboard that has this LGA 1155 socket, would fit a GTX 550 Ti, and would have the capability to overclock?

Thanks.

    Be sure you have a good power supply for overclocking.

    If u have Higher end CPU, don't be cheap on the centerpiece of your system : )

    ATX or microATX is OK?
