Yes, the extreme4 is fine. It's considered to be one of the best lower-budget z87 boards.

For the i5-3570k vs. 4670k, the performance difference is actually more like 5-10%.

Yes, the ASRock Extreme 4 has been a solid line. 4670k might be about the same price as the 3570k but what about comparing Z87 vs Z77 mobo prices? Usually Z87 is more expensive.

If mobo price difference is only $10, then I'd get the Z87. In the real world, you would never notice the difference between the 3570k n 4670k.

You won't make a wrong decision with either choice.

It's also a new socket vs. an old one, and a matter of whether you want the better looks of (most) of the new z87 boards. (Hint hint Asus :p )

I searched US websites. The Z87 has come down in price and the Z77 has gone up. So, if the 3570k n 4670k are the same price it's a tough comparison if the Z87 is only $10 more. The benefit to Z77 is that it has been updated and perfected. The Z87 has some bugs to work out due to it being so new.

I'd go for the $1165 build, but I'd opt for a 24" monitor.

Means that I can hardly see on big screen because some object will be on way top and it will be blurry for me I think 21.5 inch will be nice for me

Unless you sit less than 2' form your monitor, 23/24" is ideal. I used to have a 20" and 24" montiors. I found the 20" monitor too small for 2' viewing distance and sold it. Plus I missed out on the expansiveness of a bigger screen.
