You might get a h77 one, better chipset, there's a cheap one, like the asrock H77M.

can i use just a single stick of 4 or 8 gb in just one slot.
because both the mobos i mentioned is dual channel memory supported.
can i use just one single stick and leave other 3 slots free for now.

You can use just one stick in one dimm slot, though, it's recommended going with dual channel for better performance.
Also other thing worth mention is all of those motherboards(the ones you listed and the one i suggested) have only two DIMM slots.

is both the rams will work as a dual channel technology ?
or i have to buy dual channel rams together ?

You see there's two P8B75M, one is the LE, which as two dimm slots, i was thinking of that one.
Yes, it will work as long as it's the same specs, it's recommended going with a same one if possible in the future.
The question of the dimm slots, i don't know if it matters to you, if you need 2 or 4.
If two the asrock h77M is a good option.
If you want four there's this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
