Brand preference is not the way to go. You've got rid yourself of that mentality and take all brands into consideration to make the right purchase. Both the 4850 and the X38 are far better products than the competing 9800GTX and 780i.

But it's your money, so who am I to question your purchases? Do as you wish, I just wanted to give you a bit of friendly advice.

and on your next build, try crossfire, it offers much more than SLI (which i find to be an overhyped ripoff)

crossfire two 4870s and you'll beat the GTX280

Even a single 4870 beats the GTX 280 in a number of games. Two of them (HD 4870 X2) absolutely destroy it, and bury the remains.
