Its the P45 chipset still, why its called the I45 I don't know.. but that's my recommendation.. unless you want SLI in the future

Newegg.ca - BIOSTAR TPower I45 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

EDIT: WTF BOOOOOOOOOOOM!!

The I45 holds the world record for the highest fsb and will run 600mhz on air. It would be a excellent choice to go with a E8500
