Ok, you can get i7-8700 which is 8th gen and any 300 series chipset motherboard. Since you also want to get RAM I found a good motherboard which offers all your needs at a lower cost which is the MSI H310M PRO.
I think that you are not into overclocking so both the CPU and mobo is not overclocking friendly if you wanna overclock then get i7-8700K and any Z370 chipset motherboard.
And for RAM get Corsair VENGEANCE® LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz which will be a bit more than you budget if so just get one 8GB stick.
