I am new to computer building (and forums) and i think that everything I have so far is good except for not having a motherboard. I am using the computer for video, audio, and photo editing (nothing extreme) with a little bit of gaming on the side. I am pretty set on the parts I have unless they aren't compatible for any reason. I am looking for a motherboard that is fairly cheap but isn't garbage either. My build right now is

PROCESSOR- Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

RAM- G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

HARD DRIVE- SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

GRAPHICS CARD- EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CPU FAN- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7

DISK DRIVE- 2 ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM

CASE- Thermaltake Chaser MK-I (VN300M1W2N) Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case

POWER SUPPLY- OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

Any suggestions would be very helpful!

For your processor and without the desire to add a second graphics card, I might suggest the ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 available here for $104

If you are considering a second graphics card in SLI, or that possibility in the future, that one won't work.
Hope it helps
