now I have Intel core i3-3220 and motherboard asus p8h67-m but I don't know why my motherboard couldn't be upgraded to newer bios because current bios doesn't support ivy bridge.

Site like newegg is fine for me

Your MB need the intel Sandy Bridge CPU on it, then upgrade the BIOS so that you can use the Ivy Bridge CPU like your i3-3220.

You can't use the Ivy Bridge CPU w/o the newest BIOS. But anyway if you need the new MB, get this one from newegg.com " GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3V LGA 1155 for $70 " that will fit you need.

I read that the MB is from your friend, so can you ask your friend for the CPU to do the BIOS update? Then you can save some.
