it doesnt sound bad but with in the next couple years it might be time to upgrade. the thing that might be getting you is your dual core. i am running a 6 core amd phenom 3ghz processor with 16gbs of ram and it tends to render 1500 frames in about 30 mins in blender. it sounds like a good machine but when the time comes to upgrade the time comes.

sadly i am not that much into what parts are the best i can tell you if you want to build a high end machine for everything in general you can build an eight core machine for about 1500 and i beleive that included the monitor when my buddy built his
