Nothing wrong with being stuck with an i5 2500K. Great processor.

No you can't overclock with H61 or H67. You need P67, Z68, Z75 or Z77.

what is your budget, how much can you spend and at what point will you cringe and back off from spending another 5 bucks?

you say 'stuck with a 2500K' the 2500 is an amazing CPU that i would challenge any standard or even PC gamer to max out with out trying to max it out. its more CPU than most people currently need. the z68's are not much more and in some cases less than the p67 but you have trade offs as in the cheap 68's have a single pcie and stuff like that. what video card will you be using, what is your current PSU, and how many hard drives will you have?

Anort3 suggested one from "You need P67, Z68, Z75 or Z77.".

Please read this review....ASRock extreme 6 or MSI Z77A-GD65. Both are great Z77 mobos; the latest and affordable. You can overclock your i5 2500K. It is a great CPU to stretch it to the limit. But, get an aftermarket cooler (noctua nh-d14, cooler master h612 or corsair h100).

The best part of these two mobo is that you would be able to upgrade IVY Bridge down the line.

What is that Rs? Is that the Indian Rupees or some other country?

That is around $120 US dollars. Gigabyte, Asus and AS Rock makes some very good boards in that price range available here in the US. Not sure if you can find one there or not for the same price.

I don't see anything on that Bitfang website. There is a Jetway Z68 board for Rs. 7236 but it's out of stock and I would not put a 2500K in a Jetway board anyway.
