Hi there! re: what motherboard would be good for Intel core i7 2600K with integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000... I'll comment: If you wanted to take advantage of the chip's integrated HD 3000 graphics, then I'd recommend against any P67-based mobo's - as there is no way to access the graphics core via the P67 chipset. BUT: with the graphics card you've chosen, I'm sure you have no need of the Intel graphics 3000 'core' built into the CPU.
The P67 chipset does allow you to use the CPU's overclocking features.
The H67 based mobos apparently give you access to the integrated graphics core (3000) but not the 2600K's overclocking features--which I imagine you'll want.
From what I can recall, it is not until the Z68 chipset-based mobos that you can access the integrated graphics AND overclocking features. But I don't know whether the Z68 chipset has any advantage over the P67 chipset when it comes to ability to overclock the 2600K. The price of an Asus P8P67-based mobo (there are at least 5) can be as little as ~$30 (refurbished, I think) up to around $150 (that's overpaying).

However, the Asus Z68-based mobos are at least $100 more expensive (I've seen them priced at $250-300) recently. But i have no idea what deals are out there if you shop around. I am also unfamiliar with other benefits of the z68 chipset for the i7 2600K (I'm sure there are SOME...). Finally, depends on whether you are comfortable buying a refurbished motherboard or not.

In closing: I realize that I haven't actually answered your question, but hopefully my comments can help steer you in the right direction! Personally, I like Gigabyte and Asus mobos, but MSI, AsRock, Abit, Biostar... are worth checking out. :sleep: 
Best of luck.
