  1. Budget? Country? Any specific retailers you have to purchase from?
  2. Best answer
    Get Gigabyte 970 UD3P. Abit better overclocking motherboard. Rest is fine. However try to get a better PSU. You can check this list for that--> http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html
  3. I am sorry but low budget and professtional programs will do not go together well and that build will just take a long time to do anything fancy in AfterEffects and/or render anything over 100 frames long in at or higher than 720p
  4. Looking at the build you had outlined, and not knowing any budget, I'd guess this would work fine for you. If you add a Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler and overclock it you can squeeze some additional performance out of it:
