The motherboard and CPU are not compatible. Exchange the motherboard with one that has a socket 1155.

Yeah little details over looked like that can lead to a D'oh! moment.
The board is AMD while the CPU chip is Intel.

If you're gonna stick with a Z77 chip they're going to be in the 200.00 plus range.

You could downgrade your CPU to an i5 3570K model..

Also what store are you buying these parts from, links would be very helpful with prices.
