the last one of those is not LGA 1155.

And out of the other three you will most likely not notice any significant difference, but I would go with the Intel Core i3-3220 as it is a newer generation and the best one of the three.

I agree with Alvine... a PC is a decent long term investment so spending an extra $50/60 for a quad core i5 would really be worth it in my opinion.

Get the i3-3220 if you can only afford to spend about ~120$, the i3-3220 is an ivybridge cpu, the others are sandy(excluding the last one, that's not even for that socket), the ivybridge will have a slightly better performance since it's an improvements from the sandy bridge architecture.
If you can afford an i5, get the i5-3470, best bang for the buck i5 : http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Core-i5-3470-Quad-Core-Proc...

Double post, also if you don't need the on die gpu, you can get the i5-3350p for 180$.
