Computer Upgrade for programming and editing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone

 

I am currently planning on upgrading my computer this December or early next year. I am mostly using my computer for programming/coding and image editing.

My current build is/was mainly focused on gaming, but since I have started to work a lot with editing and programming, that is my new main focus. 

 

Current build:

 

CPU: i5-6600k

GPU: MSI R9 390x 8gb

16 gb ddr 4 ~2100 mhz.

Boot/application drive: Samsung 850 evo 500 gb ssd

Storage/work files drive: WD Blue 1tb

 

If you need other specs, just let me know. I just think these are the most important? Correct me if I am wrong ;)

 

I was thinking about upgrading my CPU/Motherboard and maybe upgrading to 32 gb 3200 mhz ram.

 

What should I upgrade and to what? 

 

Thanks!

if your going to do both, id go 8700k/z370. Can easily get a used z370 board for a good price, and 8700k too. You wont need 32 GB of ram honestly, Image editing doesnt take THAT much ram unless your working on massive resolutions

for editing a better gpu for acceleration would be nice. but that cpu/mobo idea is really good. if you get it second hand at least. if you can wait for a while, the zen 2 chips are comming next year
