Photo Editing Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So my dad asked me to help him build a computer so that he can process the photos that he takes. His current computer is WAY to under powered to do the stuff that he wants to do. I was wondering if you guys could recommend me a build cause I don't know too much about PCs outside of gaming. He said he's willing to spend $1000-$1500 but I don't really know what price range this build will end up in.
