  1. Welcome to Tom's Forums! :)

    Hmm...do you mean ASUS Crosshair IV by chance? If so then the ASUS Crosshair IV.

    Taking it literally- If the 6-core is listed on the C3F then the C3F otherwise the M4A89GTD PRO/USB. Couple reasons: the 790FX isn't much slower and doesn't have an onboard GPU taking up resources including Physical RAM and PCIe bandwidth. Keep in mind the C3F is EOL.

  2. This is my first build and I'm still learning. Is the Crosshair Formula IV vastly superior to the Crosshair Formula III?
  3. Vastly - NO! Better yes.

    Depending upon your budget, here's a few that I now run just fine - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007625%20600007943&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=22|13-131-644^13-131-644-02%23,13-157-196^13-157-196-TS,13-131-655^13-131-655-TS,13-157-188^13-157-188-TS,13-131-363^13-131-363-TS
