Plz help selecting motherboard? Power issues!

I have bought an i5 4440 and corsair cx500
i m short of money,so i cant afford B-85 mobos

Gigabyte h81m-s1 is within my range,but it has only 4-pin connection for cpu(atx or eps).
Is it good enough(going to use integrated hd 4600)?

Or should i save on ram buying kingston 1600/CL10 ram instead of corsair vengeance 1600/CL9 and buy h81m-s2pv which has 8 pin connector?

Plz help.

  1. The high profile ram modules are a waste they just look cool , dump the ram.

    Thanks for helping.
    By ur answer:-Spending on better latency ram wont improve graphic performance of hd 4600.

    Is that what u mean coz if its right then i will buy b85 mobo with cheaper 8 gb kingston ram
    or if h81m-s1 with cheaper ram could work(I m really tight on budget0.
    Thank you

    The Gigabyte board is fine just get low profile ram 1600mhz is fine.
