    I know this maybe more reading than you wanted but here's a good description of IG/HG etc.

    Shimano Cassettes & Freehubs

    So basically you should be able to use the other 8 speed chains and get away with it. I guess it comes down to how much you want to spend. I think the HG-91 is about $30, the HG-70 is about $15. As a side, the SRAM and KMC power links will work with them.

    I ran the IG70 for many years with great success. The silver finish helps to prevent rust as well.
