CS5 vs Emachine ET1161-07 Tags: Graphics Photoshop eMachines Apps Product Last response: March 13, 2012 6:13 PM in Applications Share daasu March 12, 2012 3:36:45 AM I bought an Emachine awhile ago for the purpose of just surfing and storing pictures. I now want to get into photo editing, and would like to install CS5. Will my machine handle it? The only thing I can really afford is to upgrade ram, would that help? Last Q, can I just add 2 sticks of 2g? Or do I have to replace the stick already there? (Emachine spec link) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Thank you.

The 3GB that PC came with will be fine for photo editing. m 0 l daasu March 12, 2012 11:36:56 PM It's 32 bit vista. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
