Budget Phenom II X6 Photoshop Build Tags: Build Photoshop Systems Last response: August 24, 2010 3:10 AM in Systems Share obot77 August 23, 2010 10:57:42 PM I want to build a photoshop/lightroom machine, I will also use it for office, Itunes etc.. BUT no games, no video editing. Here is what I am thinking of using: - BIOSTAR TA890FXE AM3 - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T - ATI 100-505606 FirePro V4800 1GB GDDR5 Workstation Card - A-DATA ASINTS-80GM SSD - Seagate Barracuda XT 6.0GB 2TB I am a little confused about a power supply, I don't know what 12 rail is, what is a Basic reasonable power supply, and how powerful 650W? 700W? more? Suggestions would be great. Also a basic sleek case, that is easy to get into (no glowing lights and doesn't cost $200) Going to Start with 8GB Memory 2X4GB - any brand suggestions? What would you suggest for cooling - nothing too expensive or TOO Loud. Any other comments on the components I have listed above would be great! I have a 24" Dell LCD, but I don't know if I want to keep it. A "prosumer" photography LCD suggestion would be great! I am using 64bit Win 7 pro. Thanks!

Unless you've seen different benchmarks then I have. You might want to reconsider getting that GPU. A GTS250 might be a good idea if you use its CUDA technology to help with PS. http://www.overclock.net/graphics-cards-general/389996-... A 500W PSU would be fine. Even a 450W would work. Antec, Corsair, Enermax, and Seasonic all make good PSUs. Chose from one of them. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Budget Phenom X6 Photoshop PC Build - Help Please!
