How about the MSI NF980-G65? It supports the Phenom II X6 processors but you may need to flash the BIOS if the motherboard does not come with the latest one, and if you do need to flash the BIOS, then you will need another CPU in it in order to do so.

If you didnt notice, most motherboards are AMD/crossfire so your out of luck if you want more options

I 2nd Lmeow's suggestion for the MSI NF980-G65, its a great M/B I'm running one myself with 2 260GTX in SLI.

You can always pick up a USB 3 add in card.

Also the Bluray onboard audio, is awesome, the best on board sound solution I've heard.

With an AMD CPU, if you're going to run SLI, then you need an Nvidia chipset to do it, additionally, as far as overclocking is concerned, if you plan on doing that, the Nvidia chipset does just fine, I have successfully OC'd my AMD 965 BE to a stable 4.2G on aftermarket air cooling.

As far as there being any other disadvantages, I'm not aware of any.
