OK. I am a proffesional and take my advice sireausly.
You DO NOT need 12gb of RAM. 6b will do JUST FINE and more.
You only MIGHT need 12 if you use VIRTUAL MACHINES. Ok, so GREAT cpu.
You should also go with ATI since you mobo is Crossfire. A ati 5770 would be good.

I heard that about the RAM before that 6gb is more then enough. I just remember purchasing my first computer and being told 256mb is all you will ever need....and a year later I was buying RAM to put into it. I do a lot of multitasking....and sometimes have 5-6 programs running at the same time like photoshop, after effects, etc etc.
In after effect you can preview a rendering in RAM and i figured 12 gb would be better for that
