Default 1st Time Build Part 2...CPU & Motherboard...Done.

Now, time for the heart and soul of the beast.

Budget...around $350 max. I am not aligned to AMD or Intel. I would like something that will last me (remain competitive) for at least 2 years. I am not a gamer as I have a PS3, but I do notice that the better than average gear is aimed towards gamers.

For the CPU, I would like at least a 1 time upgrade ability with CPU's.

For Mother Boards, I am needing at least 4x USB3.0, two front header and two rear. I also notice some do not have an hdmi output, can I add that with a graphics card? I want to be able to play to and record from (DVR) using a regular tv with hdmi. I also notice that some mobo's have wireless. I would like the ability to receive and propagate a wifi network to be able to stream media to devices throughout the house.

In order from most expensive to very budget friendly...

___________CPU______Mother Board
Option 1: Intel i5 3570k Asus Sabertooth Z77
Option 2: Intel i5 3570K Asus 8Z77 V-Pro
Option 3: AMD FX 8320 AsusSabertooth 990fx R2.0
Option 4: AMD FX 6300 ?
Option 5: AMD A10 ? Cheapo Mobo

Am I on the right track?
