My System Specs

Default

Your i3 and z77 mobo are more expensive than the best amd apu on a decent gigabyte board.

Here is a a85 mobo from gigabyte :

Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H w/ DDR3 1866, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit LAN, VGA, DVI-D, HDMI at Memory Express

Here is the a10 apu

AMD A10-5800K APU, Black Edition 3.8GHz w/ 4MB Cache at Memory Express

Total of 230 bucks Canadian. USB 3.0 and Sata III 6Gb and is micro ATX.

The plus side of owning a z77 mobo is being able to upgrade to an i5 or i7 in the future, which are great for productivity.
