I just picked up an ASRock Z77 Pro 4 and an i5-3570K at MicroCenter for $260. They have some deals with certain mobos where if you buy an i5-3570K the mobo price drops like 40%. $190 for the cpu, $70 for the Pro 4.
probably won't get around to putting it all together till next week, gotta back up a ton of stuff. Hadn't really planned on this upgrade but got a hefty retroactive raise so decided for once to splurge and go close to the top of new tech. An i7 would have been overkill for me.
Got a Gigabyte GTX-670 last week. This setup should hold me for a couple years.
