          Please keep in mind that you are comparing 2 different processor technologies, the Intel® Core™ 2 Quad processor is based on socket 775, while the i3 processor is based on socket 1156 (First generation) and 1155 (second generation).

           

          If you are looking for a motherboard that is more upgradable, then you need an i3 processor, but if you are not planning to buy a new motherboard, then you need to check the list of supported processors for your current motherboard.
