Default Best P45 board?

Im looking to get a P45 based board and im looking for some opinions on which one would be the best one to get. I was researching and looking around on newegg and I found the BIOSTAR TPower I45 . To me that board looked like it has great reviews and claims to have excellent overclockability. Im looking to spend less than $200 on a motherboard. Any recommendations on p45 based motherboards?

I got the Biostar P43. I would say the P45 is awesome, but would also take a hard look at this Foxconn.
