    You could look at the MSI GD65 motherboard. It's got loads of features and is pretty good value for money.

    For the PSU I would suggest the Corsair 850TX.

    Get proper info before you post such random things. The MSI GD65 has 2 PCI-E slots. What do you mean by IDE wires? It has more than enough SATA ports.

    Here's a link to help you: MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156

    Direct drive to drive copy is more of a "luxury" than a necessity. I put 2 drives in everything I build (DVD), but the truth is, the second one is there in case the first one breaks.

    All you need to do is leave the original project on the HDD until you have made enough copies.

    I would think an extra 1TB HDD would be first on my "to buy" list.

    you might want a 32 GB SSD, for your Operating System. they are right about the blu-ray drives. get an extra TB HDD. you might want a 60 GB SSD, just for puting your editing software.
