Default Another new computer

Hey, I'm looking to buy a new computer for purposes of video editing. I'm not particularly sure on what I need exactly, apart from a good processor and memory. My budget is not limited, but I'd rather spend as minimal as possible for best results.

So far I have;

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...id=339&subcat=

which is actually just a bundle, but that's roughly what we're aiming for. I already have a PSU of about 200W (350max?) - will that do? What other hard drives does the motherboard support? Would I need SATA?

If you could make a few pointers that'd be great.

Thanks in advance.

Well, for starters, you should use Ebuyer.com, they're a lot cheaper. I just added those three parts to a basket and it came to 265, order from there. As for the PSU, I would recommend any of these three: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/114929, http://www.ebuyer.com/product/112899 or this: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/135159.
Do you have the other parts or have you not chosen them yet? And will you be overclocking or not?
