Will a PC (for mostly HD video editing)with the following specifications be able to run Production Premium(Premiere Pro, After Effects, etc.) smoothly?
Processor: Six core Intel i7 -3930K 3.2GHz 12MB
Motherboard: ASRock X79 EXTREME4-M LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6GB/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM: 32Gb (4x8GB) DDR3
Hard Drives: MUSHKIN 60GB Solid State Drive SATA III(read/write 525MB/495MB)
SEAGATE/WD 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB CACHE SATA 6.0Gb/s
Video Card: nVidia GeForce GT610 2GB DDR3 DVI/VGA HDMI PCI-EXP Video Card
Sound Card: REALTEK 8-Channel Digital Sound Onboard
Power Supply: Thermaltake 1000 Watt High Performance SLI/Crossfire Power Supply
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Along with the case, fans, etc, will I be able to perform basic color correction, rotoscope, preview effects, render relatively quickly, and playback HD video etc.?
Yes it will be able to run Production Premium smoothly, but seriously, HD video editing with just a single normal harddrive? That makes no sense whatsoever. Get a RAID or at least two drives to separate the project folders from the global caches and increase performance. Also check the Premiere Pro and After Effects system specs for graphics card support with CUDA/ Mercury playback. Yours is not listed and supported (though that may change with the next update/ patch)!
