    New PC - is this a good editing rig to go for?

      Hi Everyone,

       

      This is a huge purchase for me and I want to make sure I am getting the right things.

       

      I do a huge ammount of editing in Premiere Pro and After Effects and my current Alienware laptop (7 years old) just can't hack the pace anymore.

       

      Hopefully this new machine is overkill and will last me a good while.

       

      I would really appreciate your feedback on what you think of this set up.
