faster AE processing system (using CF files)

A question for the technically connected here.

We have a lot of work (chroma/special effects corrections/additions/coloration) still to do for a current series. All video we use is CF'd or CF output for post editing in CS5 Premiere later. Most of our work is done using AE CS5. We are beginning to do some 3D Blender work also, so that might change our thinking with relation to more powerful multicore GPU's.

Question:
What would be a more adequate (faster) system for renders/previews/AE work using CF files? This would include graphics card (doesn't seem to be much benefit in fast cards for this workstation type right now...), memory, chipset, CPU's, etc.

It just seems like the most bang for the buck in AE work with CF files is pure processor power and big RAM for previews. Even fast I/O to disk or SSD doesn't seem to be the issue at all.......but I want to hear some educated opinions here.

Wow!

Guess we don't have any "technically connected" here... :)

Re: faster AE processing system (using CF files)

no, it's a question that you just answer... faster CPU and large ram give you speed in processing and preview.

if you use filter like redgiant colorista/looks and similar, they use gpu to speed up color grading, but a simple gtx485 give enought power like quadro 5800, but for a fraction of price (i discovered it some some test by simple exchange of graphic card on a workstation i7... 2500 euros wasted ....)
