I3 530 Motherboard Compatibility

I'm about to purchase a discounted I3 530 and hoping to get a motherboard for it too. Microcenter has the MSI P55-CD53 LGA 1156 P55 on sale for 79.99.

The board says it works with the i5 & i7 s, but I've read that P55 MBs will work with i3s. However I couldn't find a definite answer. Any insight would be awesome!

    Look under "cpu support" on msi's website. It should work fine. The 530 has onboard graphics which work with h55 boards. The p55 requires a separate video card.
