There are lots of choices for the kind of processor you would like, if you like games then you can look at boards that support SLI or Crossfire so you will have in the future the option to have dual Video Card (SLI is for NVIDIA Cards and Crossfire is for ATI Cards).
You also want a good brabd name (Asus, Gigabytes ect) it never garantess anything but you have better quality.
My motherboard which is an Asus P5N32-E SLI would take the Dual Core E7500 you have your eye on and can even be upgraded up.
If you surf the web you will find many options, its up to you to decide.

Just remember that some of the harware you have on your present setup might not be compatible with your new Motherboard, specially your RAM so make sure to check if it is compatible before trying to start it up.

If you upgrade your motherboard and your present OS is an OEM version it will not work as it is tied to the original computer. If already a retail version, it will be OK.
