PC for multimedia 3d animation, video editing

Hello, looking for a new system. My main needs are 3d rendering/animation (3DS Max), Adobe After Effects and Premiere for video editing. Would this be the same as building a gaming PC. If not please guide me through which parts are the most important in this animation/video editing/video capture workstation.

Approximate Purchase Date: unsure in the near future

Budget Range: (e.g.: 600-800) 600-650

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (3d animation (3dsmax), video editing (adobe after effects & premier) and photoediting (photoshop), video capture through another card,browsing, no gaming)

Parts Not Required: : keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: : newegg.com, ncix.com or any other canadian sites or american if no shipping charges like Dell

Country of Origin: canada

Parts Preferences: by brand or type - would prefer Intel (sandy bridge) as they would be better suited for this

Overclocking: not really

SLI or Crossfire: maybe if the added power helps and stays within the budget

Monitor Resolution: don't need monitor, I have a 17 inch monitor
ok with medium resolution, don't need highend 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050

    If you need the entire computer, monitor and operating system then your budget is just enough to buy a Dell instead
