lol 4 gb???
for the adobe suite you listed you need 8, or even 16 if your video editing is heavy duty. and i advice 1600MHz ram
As for cpum i'd recommend i7 3770, but 2600 is also a viable option.
power supply is too powerful, get a quality PSU from Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair or PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone. ~ 550w. At least 80+ bronze quality.

This setup will provide poor performance for the applications you stated.

- The Adobe apps are memory intensive; you want 12GB or more. CS4 and higher performs well with 2GB of ram or more per core; you'll have 8 cores to work with. I would take advantage of the faster speed ram - this mob takes DDR3 2800+.

- Get a system hard drive for your apps and use the 1TB for your project files. I would recommend setting up a RAID 0 for HD editing (2x 500GB+ @ 7200RPM.) This mob offers it onboard.

- AfterEffects wants GPU power. If you can afford to move up to a Quadro card, you'll see a huge performance boost with the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine ( Go dual monitors so you can spread out your workspace.

Good luck! Let us know what you decide to do.
