Ok. I've tried with Stirling's formula as well. But then I have a problem to calculate the sum...

I suggest you try using ?(n+1/2)=(n1/2)(n3/2)...?(1/2) and similarly for ?(k1/2). Also ?(nk+1)=(nk)!

But I still have no idea how to approximate the last sum...

I can't help you with your approach. I suggest you try using the information I gave you. With a little manipulation you will have no half integer gammas. You will have a lot of factorals and powers of 2. It may not work, but it will be clearer.
