I recently decided to get a new system but because of cash-flow restraints have to put it together bit by bit.

I have bought these:
PSU - Corsair cx600
Cabinet - Antec ONE
GPU - HIS ATi HD 7870 IceQ
(Currently running on my C2D:2.53Ghz with some low end Asus mobo)

My budget for cpu+mobo+ram: 25,000INR (~400USD)

I need:
CPU - Thinking of I5-3570
(I would not be overclocking so not going for k version, monitoring temp and managing coolers in Indian summer is too much of a hassle/hazard)

Mobo: Had thought of ASRock Z77 Extreme4 when i thought of getting 3570K,
now looking at this : ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP Motherboard ; I am from India so either i can order from Flipkart or get it from local shop

Ram: G.Skill RipjawsX 4 GB DDR3-1600/PC3-12800 (do i need 2x4gb? )

I need a suggestion on a good enough budget mobo for the 3570 and or another similar combo.

Intended use: 1080p gameplay recording at ~60fps

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!
