Errr, I think you need to reword this. Crossfire is ATI only. If you want to SLI a GTS250 you will have to get another GTS250. I'm not sure if thats what you are asking, however. I don't know how an ODD factors into this.

And inline with what helltech was saying we'll need to know your PSU model and manufacturer also.

A 9800GTX/+ can also be used so long as the RAM sizes are the same.

That board supports crossfire only. It doesn't support sli. You can crossfire ati cards only.
You can push your luck and try the hack that enables sli on crossfire boards, but there is a chance that won't work. In this case you will need another gts250 or a 9800gtx+. Just check that the ram size is the same like yours.

Why would you need a video card for the blueray burner? To watch BD, a GTS250 is fine. To burn to the BD, you'll mostly limited by the burner speeds but maybe also by CPU if there's any encoding going on.
