Apologies if this is not the space for this sort of question... My boss is buying a new pc for me to work on with After Effects. He's shown me a quote and asked if it will do the job. I am not a tech guy whatsoever....help a guy out please! How does this look?

As usual, the actual perceived and real performance will depend on what specifically you do. Motion graphics have different requirments from VFX and all that and HD is different from 4k or beyond. On paper this system will of course be pretty good. I'd perhaps up the RAM to 64 GB and also if you realyl only use it for AE there's no reason to get an expensive RTX card, given how limited AE's hardware acceleration stuff is. You can save quite a bit of cash going with an older lower spec model, even more so since RTX cards are actually a bit tricky to use with Adobe apps and require proper configuration. Standard disclaimer: All of that can be subject to change when you use other apps or specific third-party plug-ins for AE like Sapphire.
