After months of researching, I'm now finalizing my upgrade. I plan to go on 7850 but i think i can max out games with 7770 at 1366x728. Please correct me if i'm wrong with this.

And also, i plan on getting an i5 3450 at $200 but an i5 3470 is also available at $205 (This are the only available at my place). Which do you think should i get? I don't plan on ocing the processor anyway.

And last, What z77 board can i get with $120? My option was the Asrock extreme 4. I don't want any unnecessay features, but i do plan a slight ocing

TY in advance, im such a newbie here =D

I would shoot for a 7850, you'll only need a 1Gb card so it'll run around $180. If you don't want to OC your CPU I would just spend the extra $5. ASRock boards are fine, I've never had any but my friend has the 970 extreme 4 and it's been fine for him the year or so he's had it.

Agreed with JJ a h77 will do the job unless in the future you decide you want to upgrade to a unlocked cpu I feel the h77 will do just fine.

Main boards are hard to replace though, buying something that you don't think you'll need right now isn't a bad idea unless you really don't have the money to spend.
