I have to ask why you want to use 1156 at all. From Amazon:

i3-540 3.06gHz : $119
i3-2100 3.1gHz: $125

Intel H67 boards are running around $100 -- also on Amazon. This is comparable to the prices quoted at the sites you list. I see that the Biostar H55 board is running about $40 cheaper than the H67 board, but the performance gains that you get for that extra $40 are tremendous.

Trust me, you want to abandon 1156 for Sandy Bridge. A Sandy Bridge machine built today will last you years.

One more note, here's a benchmark report that stacks a number of processors up; it does compare the 540 to the 2100 by application (photoshop, video encoding, gaming, gen office app, whatever), so you can make a education decision about whether SB is worth you extra $40:

H67 or H61 with i3-2100 is a much better choice. If you want to overclock, go with the i3-540.

Asus, Gigabyte, Asrock, MSI are all good choices.

I got my Asrock H61 for $59 at Newegg. You can do even better by buying a cpu/mobo combo and possibly get a H67 for about the same price.

I recommend absolutely the sandy bridge, whether you go i3 or i5. The speed differential between the sandy bridge and the old i3-540 is pretty large, given the small price differential. I also understand the built-in graphics processor in the Sandy Bridge line to be better than the old i3-540, which I assume is a consideration if you're considering the "H" chipset.

thanks for ur advice i saw ur link i really glad to meet with intel sandy bridge,i always use inlet processor and mobo because it's reliable so don't wanna go with AMD it's perform well but it's not a reliable product so it's not my type. now i like to go with core i3 2100 and Intel DH67GD mobo in my budget and i guess it's going to perform better then AMD x4 processors

What?? You always use inlet processor?? Not a reliable product? All processors are reliable products, not sure what your rambling about.
