Go for i5 3rd generation and same ram and it is better and won't cost u much.

of cource core i3 with 4gb ddr3 ram ..... it has 3 cores in it as compared to dual core has 2 ...... so core i3 is much better than dual core

processor does not depend on RAM so don't have to mention about your ram.

Wow big mistake in the above.
First a core i3 CPU does not have 3 cores inside. That is not how that works. The i3 is a dual core CPU, usually with hyperthreading, not completely sure about the first generation i3's.

As for which is better, it depends. If the choice was between a high performing fourth generation Pentium dual core and a 1st generation i3, I would take the Pentium. In most other cases I would take the i3 though.

Obviously an i5 is better, but it all depends on how much you have to spend. If you have about $250, your best to get a Xeon CPU.
$240-$280 Xeon
$200-$240 Core i5
$140-$200 AMD 8 core CPU
$100-$140 Core i3
$0-$100 AMD 4/6 core CPU

This is a good guide to go by. Intel overall performs better, but AMD's most expensive CPU competes with the i5-3570/4670. Personally I would still think you are better off with Intel if the price is even, but on the cheaper i5 CPU's that perform worse you are best to get AMD.
The i3s have a niche in the market also between the lower end and mid-high end. They are pretty much as dead in the middle as you can be. At $120 you should start to glance at AMD, and any lower than $100 I would simply not even look at Intel because the quad core CPUs at that price from AMD overall offer more.
