Workstation for Video Editing?

Hi everyone. I have been looking to buy a workstation solely for video editing. I am shooting 1080p XAVC-S and need to use mainly Premeire Pro (and some After Affects occasionally). I don't know much about computer hardware details so I have done some research. A salesman at ADK Video Editing said that this (click here is external)) meets the minimum requirements for my needs.

That is a little above my budget and after some research, I find VERY similar machines on bhphotovideo.com for half the price tag. What exactly do I need to run Premiere Pro smoothly and occasionally After Effects?

So far I think I need: Intel Core i7-4790K Quad-Core 16GB DDR3 SDRAM NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 (2GB GDDR5) 2TB 7200 rpm SATA III HDD & 120GB SSD

Do I need to spend over $2500 on a machine? Or can I buy something with those specs above from bhphotovideo.com for a much cheaper price and be satisfied?

Looking for any help at all and thanks in advance!
