I really enjoy seeing "Lifetime Warranty" on XFX cards. Its almost a luxury. ;D
That is nice for the price but it's only ddr2. Hows this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131361

First of all I do not recommend getting generic RAM on a custom built.
Try: Mushkin Blackline 1600 9-9-9 - $110, $95 AR
Second of all you will want to watch the lack of mosfet cooling on that board; with a tower cooler air is skipping the mosfets which is not good. Even then you shouldn't overclock without proper mosfet cooling.

The ATI image quality thing still stands though.

As a frequent Photoshop user, I find the differences between a 7300GT and an X1300PRO, vast.
Not disagreeing there. I was just saying spend some cash on a GPU for rendering.

Now, if I could only find a waterblock for my 9800 I like silence...

Something from Arctic Cooling for you?

Generic Kingston ValuRAM will work just fine for him.

No OCing, just stock speeds.
Basically like a workstation for Photoshop.

You can increase the amount of RAM PS uses to increase performance. I have my photoshop set at 2500 (70%) and it's insanely quick. Not sure if theres a cap on how much PS allows but if there isn't, I'd go more RAM and assign PS to use as much as possible. Found this really helpful working at resolutions above 1600, with tons of layers.

Just a thought

I'm pretty sure photoshop will make good use of better speed/lower timings, it is a very RAM-intensive program indeed.
post #27 of 34
As the Title says. Now you don't need to go this into depth. How ever Photo shop is an intense program I would say 8gb of ram would be suffice is she is Planning on doing a lot of editing. especially if she is shooting in raw format with a camera or dealing with raw photos or large size photos.
I use PS and it even taxes my system. Quad core will be fine unless she is really going to delve into it even later on then go hexa core. Definitely get quality parts and for haven sake get an ssd 120gb at least for that program and for small amount of photos she will be working with and the rest have stored on a mechanical drive.

I use PS everyday and 4gb will be plentiful. See whether or not she will be frequently backing up, if not, I'd say looking into another hard drive for RAID 1.

You do not a beefy GPU as PS will only use it to smooth the zoom in and zoom out (CS4 and up) or for 3D rendering. Hell, even Lightroom won't touch the GPU.

I'd skimp out where possible in order to invest in getting a nice IPS panel monitor and calibration since I think that will probably be most important for photo work.

What about the most important part of all? The monitor? Does she already have an IPS monitor?

If not, I'd suggest any of the Dell and HP IPS displays. Stay away from TN.

I know that some people here are saying to go with a quad core over the 1055T but there would be nothing wrong with going with the 1055T. At $200 it is a good deal and would work well with Photoshop. I would also drop in 8G of ram because it's cheap right now and why not? Having the extra 4G is better than wanting 4G more. Take advantage of the low ram prices. If you have the money get something more than you think that you need. That way you won't be thinking that you need something new next year.
