I also already have speakers and a monitor so I won't be needing any. I'm also thinking of maybe getting 2 sapphire or XFX 4850's in crossfire instead of a 4870 if you guys suggest it.

I'll assume your ordering from Canada? If you are try www.newegg.ca, you can add all this parts to your cart through newegg.com, save it as wish list and then open the wishlist in the canadian site and it'll covert the prices over for you.

I wouldn't suggest getting 4850's in xfire over a 1GB 4870. If you want more GPU power, look at the 2GB 4850X2 or the GTX 285. The prices on the Canadian newegg.ca also don't scale exactly and you'll probably lose some rebate offers.
