Newegg.com - ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - ASUS M4N75TD AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

just an fyi, a gtx 570 performs right about the same as a gtx 480, but while running cooler and consuming less power and costing less.

The ASUS Evo and the MSI NF980 G65 are the only two that will run in full x16+x16, the others either run at x16+x8 or x8+x8.

The MSI G65 will certainly support the Thuban (PhenII x6). You will most likely have to flash the BIOS out of the box, which is really easy. (Just place the right BIOS files on a USB flash drive and boot into the BIOS and flash away.)

The mods messed with my post while I was editing it to add that I also agree in getting the 570s over the 480s. Only real difference is temp. 570's run cooler, which will allow you to push them further should you go that route.
