2x4GB RAM is plenty HyperX Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9B1BK2/8X - Newegg.com
You will need 2 or 4 stick of RAM, to have 12GB you would have only 3 sticks.
4x8GB RAM sets are very expensive.

Here are several Z77 board to choose from. Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Motherboards, Intel Motherboards, Intel 7 Series

If you are not overclocking you should not get an Intel processor with a K at the end. Models without the K are for non-overclockers. Look at other Intels a bit cheaper than the 3570k.

If you are not overclocking you also do NOT need a motherboard with a Z87 or Z77 chipset.

So you can save money on CPU and motherboard if not overclocking.

You should choose the processor before worrying about a motherboard. Some Intel CPUs need a socket 1150 motherboard and others need a socket 1155. Decide on the processor first.

I'd get either 8 or 16 RAM, not 12.

OK I have finalized everything except mobo. I think its best.
Intel 4570 i5 - 14000
Nvidia gtx 760 - 20000
Ram - corsair vengeance 2x8 GB - 12000
Psu- corsair vs550 - 3200
HDD - Seagate barracuda 2 to - 6000
Any case for 4000
Please help me decide mobo for max 6000 inr.
And finalize my PC.

There's only 2 socket 1150 boards in your price range.

I guess I'd go with the MSI B85M-G43 if you can't go above 6000.

You need to check the features on that board to make sure it has what you need. It's got a B85 chipset and I don't know much about it.

It's a micro ATX board, so should take a smallish case.

I'd let others comment before I ordered it.

You also need to find out if that PSU has the necessary connectors for your graphics card and motherboard.

I'd probably go with 8 GB of RAM so I could spend the saved money elsewhere, but it's your PC, not mine.

The mobo you suggested is fine and I want more than 8 GB ram so going for 16 GB. I didn't understand cable of PSU. So can you check instead of me
That would be the final step
Please check all sort of compatibility. I would be really greatful. Thanks for giving me time

Suggest a mobo for 100 USD for Intel i5 3570k.
And one more thing
8+4 GB ram or 4x3 GB ram?
Suggest model also for ram at most 135 USD total for ram.
Thanks and please reply fast.
Are you going to buy this CPU or a i5-4570?

B85 is more business optimized. H81 or H87 would be better for his needs.

H81 H81 are out of my budget. One in my budget is entry level.
It is weak and doesn't satisfy my needs. So B85 is my choice. I think so. Thnx. But opinions are still open.
