I can't really go far from this budget. Please give me your opinions and tips. Do I need a better video card? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/AnMH

Would keeping the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 be ok? or is there really no difference between H77M micro and the Z77? if there is no difference ill go with the H77M micro since it is cheaper.

There's no real difference in performance. The difference is that the z77 is overclockable.
