The main reason you'd want a "gaming" mb is because of better power delivery systems. So for overclocking support.
If you don't plan on doing serious overclocking you don't need a fancy 400$ gaming motherboard.
It kind of depends what CPU you're getting. Make sure hardware components fit together than just buy some stuff.
Some things do work amazingly well together, some can't fit etc. You really need to research a bit in regards to the other hardware components you want to fit onto the motherboard.
