Drigan LeePC Build: 4K Video/Premiere Compatibility

Hey guys!

I'm embarking on my first PC build and want to double check Premiere/After Effects compatibility. My typical workflow is 80% Premiere/20% AE occasional Davinci Resolve/AVID with lots of 4K video. I'm trying to build a PC with the performance of a maxed out Mac Pro for way cheaper. Also, one that can breezily playback/color 4K video.

Parts list below. (I'm sure it includes some beginner's mistakes)

The guts:
CPU: Intel Core i7-6800K 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor ($428.99)
Motherboard: Asus X99-DELUXE II ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard ($393.99)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Founders Edition Video Card ($696.69)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-2133 Memory ($149.99)

Other Parts:
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S 55.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($65.38)
SSD: Samsung 950 PRO 256GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($184.99)
Hard Drives: 2 X Western Digital BLACK SERIES 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (2 x $118.99) with RAID set up
Case: Silverstone Temjin SST-TJ04B-E (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($183.96)
Power Supply: Corsair 860W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($185.98)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit ($98.99)
Total: $2626.94

(Will figure out monitors/peripherals later)

Mainly, trying to make sure I'm...
Getting the best parts
Not wasting money on parts/top of the line options that I don't need
Maximizing compatibility with Premiere
Setting up a future ready system
Not doing something egregiously dumb

Would love any thoughts! Comments! Or links to other resources and threads!

Thanks!

You look really light on storage for 4K video. At best you have 4TB. It may seem like a lot, but it gets used up fast!

You may also want to consider what would happen if one of those drives fails....
