If you are using 3D with any frequency in after effects (CS6), 3570k with GPU will be a better choice. I would suggest at minimum a Radeon HD 7870/GeForce GTX 660 w/2GB of RAM for using 3D - Prices start around $229 for the GPU.

I have a 3770k with the intel HD4000 graphics - and it does a great job in CS6 with the exception of 3D and some of the advanced filtering takes a while to load. But since 99% of what I do is not 3D....I did not buy a separate GPU.
