So I'm (still) getting ready to put a new system together but I'm in a bit of a pickle.
Would the adobe suite run better with a e8400 at around 4Ghz or a Q6600 a bit over 3GHz. I'm assuming the later, and even better for future proofing.
My real snag is 2gb or 4gb ram. The Adobe suite is coded for 32bit, so it only should use 3.XX Gigs of ram? I've read charts where photoshop is givena performance boost for having 4/6/8 gigs of ram, but how does it use this if its only 32bit? The CS4 is only 64bit on OSx
2GB VS 4Gb
Dual @ 4GHz Quad @ 3GHz
How does 32bit photoshop use 4Gb ram?
