The newegg combo is part why I decided to go with the antec 902. I didn't notice the board was micro, nice catch I will look into that.

That's a underclocked 4870 silly :D , it has the same core and ram as the 4870 = 4870 since 4850s have gddr3

Gigabyte board is the better of the boards... IMO. If you want to Crossfire, your only option is the BIOSTAR board at x8,x8.
