depends on the program you are using and what you do in photoshop. If you do high res 3d renders that i7 will work wonders. Also like noidea said you want a lot of good hardware all around for a good machine. since you did not post the specs, just to be safe I will also agree you want a good amount of ram, 8-16 gb depending on application use, a good graphics card for speed and if you have Nvidia GPUs you may have Cuda enabled video editing software. SSDs are an option but not needed.
