😯 Holy Cow!
All I can say is you’ll do just fine. In fact you’re all set for HD! I come from the school that more is better and the way things go in this field, programs and other technologies will just get more and more demanding on PC’s so why not load up ahead of time.
For Vegas you could tone it down but I wouldn’t because next year you might switch to a different program that needs more horsepower.

thanks for the quick feedback!
i definitely want something that is productive now and will allow me to grow in the future. i also believe in paying more now for quality inetead of having to pay later for mistakes (or cheap equipment)!
