Hello!
I recently came to the conclusion my motherboard is just not cutting it anymore.
I have been considering a the newer ASUS Crosshair IV boards, but I would like to know what you think.

My current build is:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955
GPU: AMD/HIS 6850
MOBO(current): ASUS M4A87TD EVO
Case: CoolerMaster HAF-912
PSU: CoolerMaster Gold 750w
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster V6GT
RAM: 4gigs of Corsair Dom
Fans: 6 120mm CoolerMaster Fans
SSDs/HDD: OCZ Vertex-2 60gig, Intel X-25 40gig, WD Caviar Black 1TB

I simply want a board that will be compatable, and that will take full advantage of this current set-up.
Budget is no issue.

The only reason you would want to change the motherboard is if you want the possibility to go crossfire. Changing the board alone does not speed up the system.

I never said it was due to a sluggish system.
My current board wont post and after several days of trying to diagnose the problem I have decided a new board is the way to go.
I have tested all of the other hardware on a different build and found that it is in fact the motherboard.

It happens all the time that people get faulty hardware. So if you are getting a different board I suggest http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
