I basically need a full on, after effects editing beast.

I’m looking at being able to run After effects CS6 and CC smoothly as well as Cinema 4D and all the usual Adobe packages such as Photoshop, illustrator and Premier Pro.

I’m looking in the area of the following:
Intel i7 Processor (4th Generation),
Solid State HDD,
GTX780 graphics card,
1TB Extra HDD,
around 32GB of RAM
and a PSU to meet all these requirements.

I'm looking to buy a unit soon from Ginger6 and adjust the components,
If you feel that there is something that I have overlooked or you have other recommendations can you please let me know.

If you can, I'd suggest 64GB for the RAM and adjust the CPU accordingly.

I'd also buy the fastest RAM you can afford to future proof your purchase. Probably the one thing that will outlive all the other components for the next 3 or 4 years at least.
