Is this computers specs adequate for handling After Effects? Specs included this time.

I forgot to post the specs in my previous post. I am having a new computer built to replace my current computer. I am primarily using the computer for rendering videos and creating 3D motion graphics in After Effects. Here are the specs for the new computer. Does this look like it should handle my needs well, or is it missing something, or needing something upgraded? I would greatly appreciate confirmation or suggestions.

It's fine for AE, but don't try cutting 4K video in Premiere Pro on it.

Thank you for your response. I don't work in 4K. That having been said, do you see any parts of the system that need to be upgraded? If so, what would your recommendations be?

I'd get a 500GB hard drive for the system drive, a 1 TB hard drive for user files, and save the SSD for AE caches. That's where you need the speed, plus they fill up REALLY fast. But just a 500 GB SSD would be okay.

I don't want to break the bank TOO much on you.
