Need help chosing a motherboard.

Hey forum, i need a mobo for this build:

CPU: Intel i5 2500k

GPU: ASUS ENGTX560 TI

memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB

Optical Drive: LG CD/ Burner

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2

Extra info: Runs on windows 7 64bit, no sli, no overclocking, the cheaper the better, i prefer a z68 chipset if i can afford it, resolution 1920x1080 on a 21.5 inch screen.

Thanks in advance for any help you offer.
