Any z77 motherboard will do fine and will support ANY modern graphics card (for the long foreseeable future aswell). That ASrock motherboard is a fantastic motherboard (I have it myself) but if you really don't need any of those features you mentioned, then something like a z77 Pro3 or Pro4 is perfect too as they are pretty cheap but you can still OC pretty well (if you ever chose to).

If you are completely deadset on never OCing or going multi-GPU, you can always get a H77 chipset mobo, they're even cheaper still.

using Asrock H77M with i5-3570K no probems (not overclocking of course) , Same memory you mentioned. No problems with 4 months use (other than recycled 3 year old HDD went kaput) so bought a 1Tb wd blue and noticed difference in access time and its got 64mb cache
