Upgrade from E6420 to a system for photoshoping Tags: New Build RAM Intel i5 Gigabyte Systems Last response: July 20, 2010 4:31 PM in Systems Share ianlti July 20, 2010 7:08:54 AM I am currently using: Intel E6420 Gigabyte p35-DS3R 4X1gb ram 3870 Looking for an upgrade, I am doing most photoshop + little Premiere Pro. Maybe selling my e6420 + 2gb for a potential buyer. Any suggestion, I am not going to spend so much on this upgrade maybe 200-300 max. How about th Q9300 and get another 4gb ram? I was thinking of saving for the i5-750, which going to cost me about 300 with MB + 80 for ram. I know i5 is a dying board. =\ More about : upgrade e6420 system photoshoping Lmeow July 20, 2010 8:48:50 AM A Q9300 would be a good upgrade, I reckon 4 GB of RAM is enough. The GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R supports the Q9300 after BIOS update F11. If you live near a Micro Center you can pick up a Q9550 for quite cheap. m 0 l evongugg July 20, 2010 4:31:03 PM List of tested graphics display cards for Photoshop CS4 http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/405/kb405711.html GPU support | CS4 http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/405/kb405445.html#main_h3 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
