I am pulling together components for a powerhouse computer I can smoothly run the full Adobe CS6 Master Suite on. The usual workflow includes running AfterEffects, Illustrator and possibly InDesign simultaneously along with various other tools and usually a pile of tabs on Chrome.
Here are the Adobe Requirements

I'm looking for reviews of the build and a second/third/fourth pair of eyes to see if I've missed anything major. Also any suggestions of components with better performance that could work.

Thanks all.
