What's your budget?
I would get the M4A87TD EVO
Perfect balance of price, quality and a great range of features.
Your board is better though...
What's wrong with it?

The best is the Crosshair IV, and as a 2nd choice, I would go for the ASUS M4A89TD PRO

M4A79T isnt as good for crossfire.

My recomendation is the M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 if your on a budget. Great reviews, great board with great features. Its nothing too high end. Its not the 890FX chipset but it wont bottle neck the crossfire for the 6850's.

Ive been looking a lot into ASUS boards because Im building a computer and I have been looking at crossfire and a medium-high end PC. The way it came down is this:

M4A89GTD for reasonable price, good all around support for crossfire,USB3, Sata3, general use and little overclock here and there. Its good to resell, also, because it has the option for onboard video incase you want to upgrade later and just make a HTPC or whatever else you want to do.

M4A89TD for high end crossfire and better overclocks and such. Just a more high-end and gaming oriented board.

Crosshair Formula is the good stuff but for a good price. Shouldbe self explanitary. I dont think you are going for this because your build, so far, consists of decent parts and this mobo would be overkill I think. Its a great board, but more for watercooling and the higher end cards crossfire and such.

Basically no budget really... My board is on the fritz and is with these guys now as a RMA, they said if they cant replace it that Ill get like store credit hence the question... I paid 450 for it so I think I could replace it with whatever Mobo they have there (the list)

This is of course if this all happens... But Im just trying to get prepared and well inform if such a decision is required lol...

What is really that great about the crosshair?

How much store credit will they give you?
Would they seriously give you all $450 back!?

You have the same board
It's a quality design and it's not a 4+1 phase.
Cooling's not to be worried about that much in a 8+2 phase.
No budget?
Get the Crosshair IV.

This
It's a quality design and if feared MOSFET cooling could be added
In any case there's no risk of catastrophe as ASUS boards have OCP to protect against that.
