RAM and GPU vs CPU: Which is more important in 2D animation?

I am using Moho 12 to animate 2D rigs.

It works pretty well, but every other rig slows down or crashes the program.

The computer does not seem to be overwhelmed.

Memory ussage is steady at 33% and CPU at around 21%.

I want to build a new PC, but I am unsure in what to invest.

Should I focus more on RAM and GPU, or get a more powerful CPU?

From what I read online, a powerful CPU would speed up render time, while the RAM/GPU would smooth performence during the actual process of animating and working.

I don't much care about render time, my gripe is with Moho's random periods of not responding when working with particular rigs.

I can't tell what is so special about those rigs and I have applied Moho scripts to fix the problem but no dice...

My current specs are:

HyperX Savage 32GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit
Motherboard GIGABYTE GA-B85-HD3
Intel Haswell Refresh, Core i7 4790K 4.0GHz box,
Sapphire Radeon R9 390 NITRO 8GB GDDR5 512-bit Backplate
SSD Patriot Blast Series 240GB SATA-III 2.5 inch

Any advice?
