Building Rockstar VFX Editing Computer

I posted a couple weeks ago and received a lot of great feedback. Basically I'm trying to build a stellar After Effects and RED editing (Premiere) computer without going too overboard price-wise. My current computer is virtually useless working with 4k+ footage, which is heavily bottle necking my workflow. My parts come out to about $5,600. I was hoping to keep it under $5,000, but I feel like if I'm investing this much, I better not skimp on any single component. With that said, if I can save money somewhere I'd be curious to know where. I chose this Mobo because it has plenty of slots for ram, and also extra PCI slots if I want to get a Tesla down the road.
Here's the basic breakdown: SSDs for Cache and Boot drive, NVIDIA Quadro for that CUDA support in Premiere, 32 gb ram, Dual 6-Core processors, 2k monitor.
Is this the best bang for the buck? Am I over-spending anywhere? I Already purchased the GFX card because it was on sale last week, but haven't purchased anything else.
