Well i am building a new Gaming PC with i7-4770k, ASUS GTX 780, 2 or 4x 1600MHZ DDR3 RAM and was thinking of getting ASUS Z87-PRO as it matches my graphic card and someone told me to use intel motherboard for better compatibility, is it so? I though every motherboard should have same compatibility with processor since they are specifically for 1150 socket (In my case).. Is it so?

Someone told you hooey.
Any Z87 motherboard will fully support a 4770K.
Any will also support any pcie based graphics card too.
Nothing wrong with the Intel Z87 motherboard though.

I thought its always better to match the companies of mobo and GPU, what u r saying is theoretical. Theoretically every 1600MHZ RAM should be compatible to each other but still we add same models for multiple sticks.

We meet again. But... Really it doesn't matter, as long as the parts are compatible, so I really don't see what you are getting at. RAM is very delicate, that's why if you mix and match, things MAY not work.

There is no such thing as matching the brand of the motherboard and GPU for compatibility.

^ Exactly

You could Mix/Match Some B75 board from Asia and a GPU brand that you've never heard of, and odds are they will work.

Read it somewhere on Tomshardware (About the mobo and GPU).

Well I have a Asrock mobo and a Powercolor GPU and it runs fine.

Of course it would run fine but i was wondering if there is any difference? Any performance boost?

There is absolutely no performance difference between any brand combinations of parts. EVER.
