Help a newcomer choose a motherboard for his first build!

This is my first post, and my first build, so please bear with me.

Specs I am planning on:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

Memory: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB)

PSU: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-750 Watt

GPU: EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB

Case: COOLER MASTER RC-692A-KKN5

As you can see by my not listing a motherboard, I'm having difficulties choosing one. My budget for one is ~$190 and isn't too flexible. I am looking for a motherboard with HDMI, SLI support (Plan to go SLI in the future.), at least 4 memory slots, at least 3 SATA 6Gb/s slots, and USB 3.0. Any and all help is very much obliged. Also, if you see any problems with the build, (Not concerning the motherboard issue, of course) then please tell. As I stated above, this is my first build, so problems are to be expected. :hello:
