The plotting and regressionfitting tool at this site should help you:
http://science.kennesaw.edu/~plaval/applets/LRegression.html
Using this site and entering the C and I values in a table provided, I get the best linear fit to be
C = 0.368 I + 131.524
For I = 500, this results in C = 315.5

I made a mistake reading the results of that Java applet that was referenced.
The constant value in that regression fit should be
b = 109.59107,
which makes the best fit
C = 0.368 I + 109.59
Fot I = 500, C = 293.6

You will find the formulas at

The plotting of the graph is also something you will have to do yourself.
