For Rs 250 more yes do get the 3550K anyday. But then to support it with an overclocking chipset will be an expensive affair. But if you are not Volt tweaking and Overclocking your processor then pairing it with the AsRock Pro 4/3 is not a bad idea.

For Z77
ASRock Z77 Extreme 4/3 - Rs 10200/Rs 9300 approx or less
GA-Z77P-D3 - Rs 9800
Asrock Z77 Pro4/Pro3 - Rs 8600/Rs7600 ( advisable only more moderate overclocking without voltage tweaking)

Anything from Asus will cost upwards of Rs 10000. The Gigabyte is a good choice too but it is not as feature rich as the ASRocks for the money.
