Hi, this is the first post I write. I'm from Spain, my English is not very good, I apologize so something is not well understood, helped me with the google translator.
This year I graduate, I'm studying film postproduction. Since I started on this in the postproduction I used a Mac, and recently sold my iMac 27 ", to make a more powerful computer for less money, a hackintosh. The programs I use regularly are:
Final Cut Pro 7
After Efects CS6
Ps and illustrator CS6
But this year I'll start with Avid, nuke, Resolve or SpeedGrade. They work a little with Apple Color.
I would like to mention to the components I have in mind, and that helps me improve on something if necessary. I have a budget of 1500€ + (500 € monitor). Not much money but to start with a good way is fine.

The monitor is expensive but is the best I've found for that price and a resolution of 2560 x 1440.
You will find that the graphics card is not listed, I do not know what model to choose. Had in mind a GTX 560 or GTX 570 you. The GTX 570 seems expensive, and the 560ti not know if it's enough. Do not mind paying € 300, if the card is going to work perfectly 2-3 years. I've looked at some models of ATI but do not support CUDA. Feel free to any suggestions, but I will not pay more than 300 for a graphics card.
I always work with video files recorded with a 60D, 7D, 5D. But sometimes I work with RED. I need a powerful computer that works well fluid with 4K, 3D in After Effects 3dmax, you can tweak the color well, fluid rendering. I am not seeking a beast for 1500 but look for something better than an iMac and last me a couple of years without problems.
Thank you very much.
