This board caught my eye:

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Its fairly new so not many reviews. But its supports a very nice FSB and higher clocked DDR2. I plan on picking up the single PCIx16 version (UD3R).

I would go with the Biostar I45. It is a great board and an exceptional overclocker.
