Hello cows,

I've been a Mac/FCP user for the past ten years, but with the recent one-two punch of the abysmal FCPX and the nearly dead Mac pro line, I think it's finally time for my switch to PC. I'm gonna go with CS 6 for my NLE. I plan on doing heavy editing on Premiere Pro as well as a healthy amount of work in After effects, and my budget hovers around $3000. I will not be doing any assembling myself (gotta go with a turnkey/custom company).

Overall, are these general specs good enough for my needs? Is there anything I need to upgrade? What am I missing?

CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3930K Six-Core 3.20 GHz
Liquid Cooling Kit 360MM w/ Triple Fan
Motherboard: (SLI/CrossFireX) ASUS P9X79 Intel X79 Chipset
Memory: 32GB (4GBx8) DDR3/1333MHz Quad Channel Memory
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1.2GB
Power Supply: 1,000 Watts
OS/Boot Hard Drive: 120GB Corsair Force GT Series SATA-III 6.0 Gb/s SSD
Other Hard Drives: 4x 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Raid 01)
Optical Drive: Blu-Ray Rewriter
LCD Monitor: 2x 24" Widescreen 1920x1080 ASUS VS247H-P LCD

Thanks so much for your help!

Hey I'm looking at a similar set up. Did you get it? Where from? I can't offer much advice, but I see a lot of people suggesting a smaller SSD drive in addition to a regular larger hard drive.
