Msi has alot of offerings for what you specified.
I really wouldn't spend too much on a board for an i3 unless you plan on an i5 750 or i7 8xx upgrade sometime in the future.
If you do the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is a very good mobo.

Stick with a P55 board when selecting.MSI is a quality maker about the same level as Asus and Gigabyte.
Also a 3yr warranty is important when choosing a mobo.
The i3 530 is a great cpu i have one.
