It would be great to know what setups you all use. Especially the designers. And also how well your setup's handle your designs. I will start. Mine is a little dated, but it does the job for me 8834.gif

Please share your setups, by copying and pasting the categories below yellow.gif

CPU:
HDD:
GPU:
RAM:
Monitor:
O/S:
Graphics Software:
Filters Used:
Input Device:

Summary:

---------------------------

CPU: AMD Phenom 9590 (Eight core 4.7GHz)
HDD: Samsung SSD
GPU: Nvidia 770 GTX
RAM: 16GB DDR3 1666
Monitor: 2 x Samsung 22inch
O/S: Windows 10 Professional
Graphics Software: Photoshop CC
Filters Used: Topaz
Input Device: Logitech MX Master, XP-Pen 03 tablet

Summary: Photoshop is fast and easy to use, until PSD files get large. I then have to turn groups of layers off, as my system can't cope drawing fast enough. It can get to the point where it takes a few seconds to display a brush stroke.

All my covers have sizes > 1,5 GB so when the front is done and it comes to the back I'm always getting in trouble. ^^
So normally I do a smart object for my back images and that mostly solves the problem.

I think about upgrading my CPU and RAM from time time but then I'll need a new Mainboard as well - so I live with a slower performance here and there. wink.gif

Charlie and the... by Zungam



After struggling with my old motherboard and the RAM I've decided to make a little upgrade.

CPU: i5 9600k
HDD: Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500 GB, 2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB, WED NAS 6TB as Raid 0 with 2x WD Red 3TB
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1050ti 4GB VRAM
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX @3000Mhz
Monitor: iiyama ProLite B2791QSU-B1 1440p
O/S: Windows 10 Professional
Graphics Software: Photoshop CC 2019
Filters Used: Topaz & Akvis
Input Device: Logitech MK850, XP-Pen Star 06

Summary: I've bought a new GPU and HDDs anyway, so I only had to spend about 80€ more than I'd had to if I bought a new motherboard for the 1150 socket with 32 GB RAM. And after the first hour in Photoshop with the new system I can say it was worth doing it.

Photoshop is way more effective with only six cores instead of eight or more. The single clock speed with the i5 9600k is 900 Mhz higher than in turbo mode than it was with my Xeon e3 1231 v3 and now I don't have any lags anymore during scrolling through a PSD or zooming in and out, layers get blend in/out immediately when I click them - even if the file's size is about 2GB.

So I'm pretty happy with it now. 8824.gif

If anyone is in the market for a budget tablet, I recently bought myself a XP-Pen 03, for just £29.99. I have to say, it is one of the best purchases I have made for my PC (value wise). I previously had a Wacom tablet, but my young daughter decided to 'borrow' it thinking it was a real pen, and I never saw it again. But the XP-Pen has been almost perfect for me. My only slight grievance with it, is the pen pressure. You do have to push quite hard to get full pressure, but it just takes some getting used to. Other than that, there is no lag and it is very precise.
