Hi so this will be my first hac pro build, only building it for video editing such as premiere pro, after effects with some 3D, photoshop, etc.. As of right now i am not getting into Cinema 4D or Maya but definitely plan to within the next year or 2. The only 3D I am doing now is in After effects. I also plan on running 2 programs(on a regular) or 3 programs(sometimes i do) at once and I am looking for fast render speeds, etc.My question is, if this build is good for right now? I do plan on expanding and growing into more 3D heavy programs like Cinema 4D and Maya in the future, so should i buy these specs and change them out later or just buy the best and just expand it. I am planning on building it with OSX Mavericks so compatibility please!

All your specs looks great. Only 1 suggestion - install a second SSD as scratch drive for your Adobe apps. Works wonders in terms of speed in Adobe CC. C4D is the way to go with 3D, as it seamlessly integrates with AE and PPr. Your machine is well spec'd for this task. Enjoy your build!
