    Any fast quad core would be sufficent, but for AE CS5 you will need to be using a 64bit OS and probably more RAM than 4gb.

    The upper end i5's are quad core and would be plenty. That is 760, 2300, 2400, 2500, 2500K.

    The 480 is only a dual core. It uses hyperthreading to act like a 4 core (4 thread) but is not a quad core! It will do the job, but there are far better options.

    Particularly as it seems you've invested a few thousand on software...

    That is i5 760, 2300, 2400, 2500, 2500K.

    Alternately any of the i7 processors, most of the new Sandybridge offerings, Amd's Athlon x4's, Phenom x4 and X6 offerings and even the old socket 775 quad cores.....

    Of course, if you want the absolute best... Intel Core i7 980X
