PC Build for Photo Editing

Guest
 Share

Hey everyone I'm planning to build a PC for graphic design in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Specs should be:

16 GB DDR4 RAM

Samsung 860 Evo 250 GB SSD

WD Blue 1TB HDD

...

My question is which option is more useful for these kind of workloads (only photo editing/design, painting, logo design - no video editing):

1. i7 8700 (non k)  and using the integrated gpu

2. i5 8400 with 1050Ti 4G

3. something different (budget under 1000€)

 

Thanks for your help ;)

The i7 8700 alone would be better as there is very little GPU hardware acceleration for photo/image work exclusively while the i7 8700 will have a very strong single core performance which these applications love while the Hyper-Threading will improve multi-tasking.

Photoshop will use a gpu to accelerate certain functions.

 

Add an appropriate amount of hdd storage if it is needed.

@Slottr @Princess Cadence Would you say that the i7-8700 (non k) is good enough for photo editing?

Yeah, absolutely. But i'd still strive for the 8700k for its higher base clocks, even if you aren't overclocking
