Note that all of the programs you mentioned have GPU acceleration (not absolutely necessary but recommended) through the driver stacks of OpenGL / OpenCL supporting professional graphics cards. I'd actually recommend saving money on a GPU, buying as much memory as you can and then pairing that up with a PNY Quadro 600.

Just remember that this build will NOT be able to play games.
