I would look into getting a system from a company- one that you can design yourself from their options, but then you get tech support and warranty if it goes wrong. Here are a few good options:

Get as much processing power as you can afford, about 4 GB of RAM for every core of your processor and a motherboard that can handle them.

Graphics card doesn't matter for AE. (Unless you're getting into the rare 3rd party plugins like Element that use a GPU, but even then it doesn't require much.) Any graphics card that's decent for C4D should be fine for AE.
