Nice, the analogue PWM should allow better clocking over the digital of the reference cards.

You may also want to try two bridges(can cause issues in some ocnfigs) with the bridges connected in opposite directions. you'll see JP1 and JP2 on the bridges...JP1 on top card, first bridge, JP2 on top card, second bridge.

Pretty sure you only need one bridge. The other slots are meant for adding more cards than 2.

Good choices

4850 is only 10%-15% better than the 4830. ( if i remember correctly)
