Gaming First Build Need Help CHoosing Motherboard

Hi everybody! I am a first time builder and I am going to be building a pc for gaming. My budget for a motherboard is about 150 or so, and I want one that can manage gaming. The cpu would probably be an intel i5 2500k. I am open to any suggestions. Also, could somebody explain what chipset would be best and the differences between them?Look at my other thread "First Build Suggestions" in the "Homebuilt" category. Thanks in advance and advice on other parts is welcome on the thread mentioned earlier!
