Photoshop Only Build for Client - around a $1000 budget - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Get 16GB of ram, when ram prices begin to dip (which they will sooner or later) buy another 16GB if you are going always be helping the guy out when he starts finding a need.

Only he can tell you how intensive his work load is, I know for me rendering sony vegas video projects that my 8GB of ram is a huge handicap, I'll get 100% ram utilization far faster than I get anywhere near 80% cpu utilization, but use some common sense.. if its out of budget it may be better just getting a solid gpu with 16gb like the 750 ti.

Case: Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower - $69.99 @ Newegg.com
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme3 - $79.99 @ Microcenter
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k - $269.99 @ Microcenter.com
CPU Cooler: CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 - $69.99 @ Newegg.com
Memory: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2400 - $154.99 @ Newegg.com
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti - $159.99 @ Newegg.com
SSD: Crucial M500 240GB - $119.99 @ Newegg.com
PSU Rosewill CAPSTONE-450-M - $69.99 @ Newegg.com
Wireless Card: Rosewill N900PCE Dual Band Wireless - $24.99 @ Newegg.com
OS: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit - OEM - $99.99 @ Newegg.com

Total: $1119.90

The only thing I'm really concerned about is two things. Is a 4770k too much for Photoshop? Or Could I get away with a 4670k? Or is there something else I could use that would save money and be just as good. Perhaps even using a stock cooling solution; like a Xeon? Only reason why I'm looking at K processors is because I told him I would overclock. If there's an alternative Xeon solution I would look at that. Then I wouldn't need a Z87 Board though, but then I can't get it at Microcenter I'm sure and save so much money.

Secondly is the Graphics Card. Is a 750 Ti enough for Photoshop?

Lastly, is 16GB of memory too much for Photoshop? This is professional heavy multitasking Photoshop work we are talking about though.

If you're trying to save money, use the stock heatsink and get good thermal paste for under $10

16gb of memory I would recommend. Maybe look used?

he already said he wants to get a good overclock to 4.3ghz, not sure if possible with stock heatsink.

It's hard to sway a client to a specific direction if their earlier system was "OK" to them and the don't want risking a different system with a different builder. >_< Been there too many times so I feel your pain.

 

The link was specific for AMD because it was only recently that AMD GPU's had support for Adobe products, before it was all about how Adobe supported NVIDIA's CUDA but now Adobe has support for AMD cards that's why I linked to that to offset prices from an additional 16GB or RAM as well as getting a non-K CPU.

 

But if the build is all within budget it looks good from here and if the 750ti has 2GB of GDDR then it'll surely support 2 monitors for his work.

 

I'd say this is a solid build I'm just a little bit concerned about OC'ing the CPU (despite having flawless process in having a stable OC) as opposed to having solid benefits of having more RAM for the system and a better GPU for workflow acceleration.

Why wouldn't an amd work I'm building a 1000 cs6 system too but I've always used amd and they say the amd a10 apu work great but I have a 6300 and tested photoshop and it is fast running at 4.3ghz.now the reason I really need help is I don't use cs6 on a daily basis and I wanna make sure I use the best cpu possible for just basic editing no animations etc.

Also I shop at frys mostly cuz on Fridays they always have good combos that beat out alot of online sites with mobo and Cpu combos.im going today cuz there a sale on 32 gb ram 1866mhz patriot extreme for 220.the reason I liked the amd combo at tigerdirect was the 9370 with h100i case mobo 750 psu 8gb mem and 1 tb hdd for 570 I can add a 760 2 gb for 170 but looking at the r9 series cuz adobe leaning towards and more now and a ssd 240gb for 110 still under a grand and clock speeds are 4.4 to 4.9 without OC.i know how to t week the hell out of the software and make this machine a beast but then there the amd 9370 cpu that's a power hog 220 watts but the setup comes with the h100i.what to do what to do.have a week to decide on cpu mobo unless there a great sale today hopefully.
