This is the base for a build I'm working on for a high performance Photoshop computer that can take Photoshop to its limit and be scalable for the future upgrades. Let me know your thoughts and suggestions as well as what builds you are working on and what components are parts you recommend.
Here is a detailed breakdown in my blog that uses PCPartsPicker to configure builds and my explanations on why I picked my components.
Seems like a lot of money work and you have to do all the work and support. For a little less here is what I got. All I had to do was pop in the Ram Plugin the usb3 4TG external and my old wacom tablet and display and install Photoshop. Came with 3yr service with OS installed.
