Advice: how to upgrade my workstation

I'm looking for advice on how to upgrade my current workstation to be ready to edit 4k footage. I'll be gearing up for a project with a bunch of c300 mk II 4k footage, I believe some flavor of ProRes. I've edited a few projects with 4k Panasonic footage, and my system chugged a bit doing that. What do you think I should upgrade?

My system:
• Intel Core i7 4770K (3.50 GHz)
• 16 GB DDR3 RAM
• 1TB + 8GB SSHD HDD
• Windows 10
• NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB
• Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250 GB (OS and program drive)
• 6tb Backup 7200 RPM HDD
• 4TB 7200 RPM Seagate project Drive
• 1 TB 7200 RPM empty drive
Adobe Creative Cloud Premiere Pro 2017

Based on a slightly upgraded Lenovo Erazer x510

Where is my bottle neck? GPU? CPU? Storage needs serious upgrades (I think I'm dealing with 8-12 TB of footage), but I'm not sure what I need besides that. Thanks!

your cpu is underpowered, you need more ram (32 gig) and you should upgrade your gpu as well.

Biggest bottleneck? Storage. You are running your media off of a single 7200rpm hdd. At least that's what it looks like to me. Test the speed of that drive. What is the data rate of your source footage? Leave some room for overhead.

yeah, you need to upgrade to a raid as well.
