Hello, my ancient computer finally died and I need to get a new one. It will be primarily used for Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4 and Dreamweaver but will do light duty in Premiere Pro CS6 and Illustrator. I am considering having it built by AVA direct. I haven't talked to them yet - just used their online configuration.
I have drives for storage already so I am mainly concerned with running the programs.
My main concern is getting the max system for my price - this system comes in under 1900.00. I'm thinking that I would benefit more from 32gb of ram than I would with 16gb of ram and adding an ssd drive. Am I thinking wrong?
Here are the specs. I would appreciate any comments. I left off the case/power supply/dvd burner etc. to simplify.
