Ok, I am planning on buying a new CPU and i have planned to go with intel ivy bridge arch. So please suggest a motherboard and processor combination so that budget is within 230 $(pref i5 3xxx series) ;)  . Also, if not possible second generation suggestion welcome but really need to be powerful. Do not bother with i3 second gen (third gen is okay).
Appreciate it.
