Photoshop builds AMD or Intel or intel.

I've got two builds. Which one will run Photoshop and general usage better?

Photoshop loooves single thread performance. And 6100 is by far the most powerful out of those.

Don't know if you can OC that 6100 with an H series board. I checked, and no bios update has been released to allow it. 

 

Here is a modified version of your 6100 build that can be overclocked: 

 
CPU: Intel Core i3-6100 3.7GHz Dual-Core Processor  ($129.99 @ Micro Center) 
Motherboard: ASRock Z170M-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard  ($127.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Case: Silverstone ML05B HTPC Case  ($40.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Power Supply: SeaSonic 350W 80+ Certified SFX Power Supply  ($42.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Total: $415.90
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

I know you said $350 max, but if you can spring it, this would be wayyyy better. 
 
 
CPU: Intel Core i5-6400 2.7GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($183.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Motherboard: ASRock Z170M-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard  ($127.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Case: Silverstone ML05B HTPC Case  ($40.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Power Supply: Silverstone 300W 80+ Bronze Certified SFX Power Supply  ($48.99 @ SuperBiiz) 
Total: $462.85
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Either way, good luck with your build.

Shit, I believe you're right on that one. I will replace my first build with that, and see if my coworker is up for it, since I'll be building it for him, not myself.

I'm still wondering about multi-thread vs. single-thread on Photoshop not sure which it prefers.

A i5 5775C + Z97 is superior as the iGPU is FAR better and has that absurdly fast L4 dRAM cache

That L4 cache is pretty okay...

However... My DDR4 say's "Hello".
