First Build (Adobe Suite, AR Dev)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget & Location: 

- $2400 USD (willing to upgrade for future proofing)
- Minnesota, USA

 

Aim:

- Main: Adobe Creative Cloud apps & Web Development
- Second: Capability of creating 3D AR / VR apps (Unity Engine) 
- Bonus: Gaming on the weekend, but no streaming or competitive play (Apex, GTA V, Skrim)

 

Monitors: 

- Desire a 2 monitor setup
- Currently have a Dell 24" 1080p @ 60Hz monitor (hdmi, vga)
- Would like a second monitor @ 144Hz (not sure what resolution)

 

Peripherals:

- Need Windows OS
- Currently have a Dell Bluetooth keyboard and mouse kit
- Willing to upgrade to Gaming mouse and keyboard setup
- Don't care what my case looks like

 

Why Am I upgrading?

- I am upgrading from a Dell XPS 13 laptop ( Intel i5, 8gb RAM, 256gb SSD)
- My workflow in Adobe Premiere is severely lacking as I am getting into more complex designs
- I also very much want to develop 3D applications for AR, and my current setup simply lacks the firepower to develop effectively
- I develop websites as a side hustle, and I also like experimenting w/ Python and C#
- I've been gaming on Xbox for 10 yrs now, but I'd like to be able to experience higher frames than the very limited 60fps you get on console

 

***Thank you so much for the time you spend helping me w/ my first build***

it really depends on your specific use case.  The 9900k is a faster cpu overall but at a much higher cost.  The difference in speed is dramatic but may be noticible depending on your workload.

@xdeathshot20 Would you recommend Ryzen 2700k over the i9-9900k for Adobe Creative & AR development?

 

Thanks again!

Intel is king for anything Adobe related as much as people hate Intel and want to promote AMD builds all the time you'll be better off with an i7 8700K than a Ryzen 7 2700X, if you can go with a 9700K or 9900K it's even better.

@Princess Cadence I was a little surprised when I saw an AMD recommendation! I see you are running two Intel setups. Is there any chance you'd be willing to help me with my build? I get lost in all the options, and would like expert advice for my investment ;)

 

$2400(+/-) USD based around an Intel 9900k

Something like this?

 

Tried to go only with the best of the best for your budget, monitor wise personally I'm a 3440x1440p ultrawide big time lover but you can replace it for about any 2560x1440p 27inch 144hz freesync, I just feel that 75hz with freesync is quite good enough, just a matter of personal preference really.

 

Cheers!

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
