Would This Computer Setup Be Good Enough For Photo Editing?

Postby Daniele » Sat Oct 14, 2017 4:24 am

I decided to build a new pc to upgrade from my amd athlon64 x2 with 3gb ram.
I got a great deal on a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD 760 Motherboard with an Athlon ii x3 3.1ghz processor and 8gb 1333mhz ram and a 1gb ati hd6451 vid card.
After I bought it, I noticed that processors have gone down in price.
I'm not a big gamer, the main purpose would be to run photoshop and to play civ4 and the everyday stuff.
Would the system I bought be enough or would I have buyers regret and should I go to my local store and pick up an Athlon ii x4 or phenom ii x4.
Need to keep the processor under $140.
Do you guys think I'd be satisfied with 3 cores considering what I'm upgrading from and that I'm not a gamer?

For photo editing I prefer to quad core, and minimum 8 GB of RAM.... You has to have a nice GPU too... Lik e HD 7870 / GTX 660ti...


Hope it helps... :))
