    Recommended specs for Adobe Photoshop CS6 extended?

    eric.machine

      Hi everyone,

       

      I am looking to hire a web & graphic designer at my office. I am planning buy a new imac or mac pro which can allow my designer to design as follows:-

       

      - web design -> html

      - brochures

      - banners

      - buntings and other graphics related tasks

       

      I don't need a super computer but something that is good enough to run Adobe Photoshop CS6 extended (with minimal lags) and Adobe Illustrator.

       

      Could I use iMac or do I really have to use mac pro for this one?

       

      Is the specs below sufficient?

       

      • One 3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor
      • 8GB (4X2GB)
      • 1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
      • Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
      • One 18x SuperDrive
      • Apple LED Cinema Display (27" flat panel) - could I buy a samsung monitor instead?

       

      But it is rather expensive for the above specs?

       

      Any help? Thanks.
