Hello and HELP
« on: July 09, 2018, 12:41:49 PM »

I posted this question to the computer forum with zero responses and I need my computer back! I would appreciate any input, I am also switching to the Cloud from cs6.

Hello, my Windows 7 computer needs an upgrade, I only had 8 Gigs left on my C: Drive out of my 128 Gigs SSD Drive, it finally crashed this weekend. So I have a 500 SSD drive installed and Windows 10 about to be installed. My CPU is 4770 k, a motherboard with 32 Gigs of RAM. I use my computer for Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects mainly. I don't think I need a new CPU/Motherboard Combo yet, I am not really sure how much improvement will I get if I upgrade to a middle of the road CPU. Probably one of the super expensive ones would give me a substantial performance boost. I do need a new Video card because mine was rated poorly on an Internet test. I read that Nvidia 1060 even though is not listed on the Adobe Website is considered good. My motherboard  would only take 32 Gigs of RAM, there is a discussion about Adobe only using so much RAM with the rest being unused. Any ideas? I would not like to spend more than $ 700 or $ 800 dollars in the upgrade. Will the computer choke with the new video card and 4K editing?

My 4770 k CPU is the one from 2013 so it is probably not 4th Generation

just fix the issue you have. Upgrade the video card if you have to, but stay within what Adobe indicates unless you are adventurous and find others that have made it work (see the Adobe forums). Stick with the generation of CPU supported by the MB. Newer MBs are usually needed to take advantage of the newer CPU from a MB power supply spec as well as memory access.
