will this system run photoshop/lightroom at a reasonable speed/simultaneously. Does it support 2 monitors. I am struggling to fully understand all the techincal bits to compare componants and be sure they will be done.

If suitable the computer would be built by hte company above

Thanks in advance for any help

Yes, it will work decently for photo editing using software like Photoshop or GIMP.

I have used photoshop with ease on a computer with much lower specs than the one you listed above.
