There are Socket 1366 and 1156 I7 CPUs. Which do you want?

Socket 1156 boards are in general less expensive, but their price ranges overlap.

The main thing that you get with 1366 and the I7s that go with it is the triple channel RAM capability.

And dual x16 slots I believe. Last time i checked the p55 only has have x8 x8 dual card options. Which again should not be a big deal, its all PCIe 2.0 anyways.

Depending on your budget, two of the best budget x58 motherboards are the Asus Sabertooth and the Gigabyte X58a UD3R. They compete very well against the 300+ dollar x58 motherboards

I don't own one, but the Sabertooth looks like a good deal, as you suggest.

ASUS TUF Sabertooth X58 review

(I find the style of reviews there to be a little annoying, but this looks like a relative bargain for an X58 board.)
