VFX Workstation build

I need help configuring a workstation for VFX running mostly Adobe CS6 and Autodesk 2013 suites. This is strictly a work machine. I am trying to squeeze as much time into research and reading reviews, but I am under deadlines to get things done so I throw myself at the mercy of the community and their wisdom. Budget is up to 10k if the components are justifiable. Would really appreciate a full config (case, power...etc) but any help on the core system would be very helpful. Many thanks!
