Get the i5 3450 instead. (you wont notice a difference.)
And the Asrock H77M or Pro4/MVP.
Lastly, that RAM will void your warranty because of high voltage. You want the Corsair Vengenace or G.Skill Ares sticks.

Well, its a bigger motherboard but if its not available check out the Asus P8H77 series and find a mobo which suits your needs. I know little about the P8H77 series, sorry.
