Hello! I'm sorry if I'm posting a thread in the wrong area, but I'm new to this. Though I do have a question...a very general question. I'm looking for a desktop pc that could be built so that I could have edit photos and save photos very quickly and efficiently (without having to wait for my slow computer to load photoshop).
I literally have no idea where to start. I've been browsing ''build your own pc" websites, but I don't understand a lot of the terminology. Also, I'm not quite sure what amount of memory or whatnot I need for my editing to be optimal.
If someone could PLEASE recommend components for building my own pc for photo editing, and what each component's purpose is, that would be SO helpful
Well, for $500 for photoshop, it'll be hard but I'll give it a try. I'll be assuming you require everything inside the case, I'm not sure if you need an OS, monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse...etc. For the 500 i'll just list parts that go inside the case. Im not sure what exactly you need so I tried to keep balance between speed, from the SSD, a gpu that isn't powerful but supports latest standards like opengl and DX11, a reasonable cpu/mobo w/ USB3/Sata3 support. You can get more powerful hardware probably and save money on the mobo but I think I got the cheapest usb3/sata3 mobo from an okay brand.
