Okay, the B75 chipset will not allow you to OC your CPU. If you want to OC grab a Z77 board like the one SR-71 Blackbird linked. Great board for the price. If you DO go Z77 you have the chance to upgrade to a 3570K and OC it. You CANNOT OC an i3, even if you did it would not be significant.

If you're going to buy an i3, get either a B75 or H77 motherboard. Basically the cheaper Gigabyte board of the two above or H77 like the ASRock H77M. You don't need a Z77 motherboard especially if your budget is small and limited.

Is this a gaming build? If so, you shouldn't even need more than 8GB let alone 16GB.

would a z75 mobo work just like a z77?

There's very little difference between the two. It also supports overclocking if that's what you're trying to say. It's not that popular because you can just pay a little more for a Z77.
