Is mini-GBIC uplink necessary when Gig-T ports already exist?

I'm in the process of spec'ing a new 4202vl-72. One of the modules I'll be placing in the unit is the 20 port Gig-T + 4 SFP. Since this module has 20 Gb ports do I need to buy the Gigabit 1000Base-T mini-GBIC transciever for an uplink, or can I just use one of the 20 Gb ports?

Thanks in advance.

hi
you can use one gigabit port for uplink no need purchase 1000 base T module

also you can make trunk method on two switch you have 2Gbps uplink port

example:

4200(config)#trunk 19-20 trk1 trunk
othersw(config)#trunk 25-25 trk1 trunk
