Budgets about £80 not sure how that translates into dollars. Does he really need the Z77 chip set? I assume that's the new high end? That MB you linked is £112 so a little over budget.
if he wants to overclock that "K" chip than yes a Z77 mobo since there really isn't a Z75 option over on that side of the pond.MSI Z77A-G45 £78.92 Inc VAT
that will be good for the budget.
