I'm planning on building a new system and can't decide between these two motherboards. I've chose my cpu which will be the AMD Phenom II X4 965 rev C3 and I want to us two ATI 5750 cards in crossfire mode. The Crosshair III suports pcie 2.0 x 16 dual whereas the M4a79XTD EVO supp orts pcie 2.0 x8. Is there enough diffence in the two modes to justify spending the extra money on the Crosshair III?

If you want to maximize your cards performance yes. It's also a matter of adding a bit more to ensure you aren't wasting the hundreds you've spent on the two 5750s.
