If you want to do design work, you definitely need a dedicated GPU. You could go with an i5 + good GeForce 600 series for a lot better performance (Photoshop has good GPU acceleration. More VRAM = good in this case, since Photoshop will make use of it for some features - content aware fill and the like come to mind).

I wouldn't say "definitely", but I would say it would be good to have. I wouldn't get it at the expense of the CPU though. Search the forum for "photoshop" and you'll find a number of posts regarding GPU acceleration in Photoshop and such.

But that build looks fairly good.

looks like a decent build...suggest that if your budget allows, put in an SSD..

computer lounge have a 7% off voucher - CLCART7. I just ordered my Samsung 840 120gb from there for about 139..they have free shipping which i found to be a good plus..

the voucher expires today btw...but the normal price of that ssd is 149..so not a big deal..

Absolutely include an SSD if you can. You'll see such a huge improvement in load times both in and out of Photoshop. Also good for using as a dedicated scratch disk too.

Looks pretty good. What the performance hit be for common photoshop tasks if you swapped for a dual core like the 3220? Reason I ask is because a friend wants me to plan a build to be used for photoshop too. Is paying alot extra for the quad worth it just for photoshop?

Hey spiderm0nkey, welcome back. How did that Viper build go? I saw the thread on the overclock.net forums a while ago.

It would definitely help with a lot of filters and such, but whether it would be worth it or not is the question... If they're using Photoshop a lot then it might well be worth it. But if they don't use it much, then it probably isn't.

Good question TomSahz, come to think of it, the quad is the most expensive part for this rig. I could use the extra savings for other stuff if I were to go for the dual core though. Hmmmm? I'm going to look into that more.

what about an amd fx 6300 or fx 8350 they're cheaper and have pretty decent multithreaded performance.

But worse single-threaded performance. So, which is most important for Photoshop? Single-threaded or multi-threaded?

It is supposed to be multi-threaded on the things Adobe deems demanding enough for it. You can overclock an AMD FX to have almost as good single-threaded performance as an i5.

In which case it would probably be about as good. But I'd still want to see benchmarks...
