I would say to have at least 16GB of memory because running those programs will use a lot of RAM. You want a good graphics card like the GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 as well.

Just an alternative to consider..
I just finished making all these decisions myself, back in October. My main system motherboard is having problems, and it was time to upgrade my 6-year-old AMD Phenom II Quad. Total cost was somewhere between $2k and $2.5k (USD). I'm hoping to have it for 5-7 years (~$35/month max for life of the system).

Check out the Antec Three Hundred II case. Several members of this forum like it, as well as the 300 before that. You can get the free version of Tutuapp.vip.

That Seagate 4tb is currently the best drive. I have one now, and the other is forthcoming.

I'm using a pair of 1TB SSD Samsung 850 EVOs.

The Noctua D14 cooler is far nicer. It makes no noise whatsoever with 1 fan (all it needs) and the noise adapters. It's easily the largest part of any computer that I've ever had, going back 30 years.

I'd even suggest putting the video on a scratch SSD drive for editing, and only store on HDD when done. That's what I'm doing. That removes most I/O bottlenecks, which, for this exact use, is the main video bottleneck these days.

And with Skylake, all other hardware must change: motherboard, RAM, etc.

Skylake is the future, not Haswell. I have the new i7-6700K, and it's easily faster than the i7-5820K. Most video operations are single- or dual-core, so the main factor here is raw clock speed. It's a 4.0+ vs a 3.3+. So the 6700K in practice is about 25% faster, regardless of benchmarking (mostly non-video use).
