Specs for CS 6 PC workstation

I've been a Mac/FCP user for the past ten years, but with the recent one-two punch of the abysmal FCPX and the nearly dead Mac pro line, I think it's finally time for my switch to PC. I'm gonna go with CS 6 for my NLE. I plan on doing heavy editing on Premiere Pro as well as a healthy amount of work in After effects, and my budget hovers around $3000. I will not be doing any assembling myself (gotta go with a turnkey/custom company).
Overall, are these general specs good enough for my needs? Is there anything I need to upgrade? What am I missing?
