You cannot upgrade to a i3 as it is a different socket.

Unfortunately for you..true.

Download and run cpu-z. It will identify the model#, revision#, bios levvel etc. of your motherboard.
At the motherboard web site, you should be able to find a list of supported cpu's.

You will need a socket 1155 motherboard. You will also need new ram because you need ddr3.

What is your budget? I could help you pick one.
