Yes computer configuration is really important in 4K, i'm also updating mine, actually with a mac pro i will probably switch to a PC
The new mac pro is of course a must, but with all added equipments price is x3 the 3000$ basic configuration...!
As i understand high frequency processor is more important than many core, graphic card don't need more than 2Giga because premiere using the gpu between 1 and 1,5G, really important is Ram 32G+ seems to be  effective, with of course ssd for premiere or davinci.

Reading this thread, I wonder if my 2014 retina Macbook Pro (2.8 GHz quad-core i7 Haswell, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, GT 750 2GB Nvidia) will handle it. I use Final Cut Pro X.

I use After Effects which I find amazing and if you are looking for a new computer take a look at the Dell XPS 2720 27 inch touch screen. I looked into macs and these and decided on the dell, its an amazing and very fast computer
