Default Any Motherboard Suggestions

Hey there, I just need some suggestions on motherboards for an Intel Core i5 2400k I'm going to be buying. I don't know much about what kind of motherboard I need to get besides knowing that it must be a 1155 slot.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!

My bad, Intel Core i5 2400. I might buy the 2500k instead because it's unlocked and I heard that it's very easy to overclock.
I need a motherboard that is around $100-$300.

seems like you are paying for a lot of things that won't be used with the MSI board.
