I am looking to buy a Mac Pro to use for general internet use but also Retouching. I want to be able to work on fairly large Tiffs on Photoshop CC. I will using filters such as liquify and images in 16bit. I want them to run smoothly and quickly.
I have a few options and would use an external hard drive for storage:
The base Quad-core model with added ram to 32GB
The six-core model with 16GB ram
The six-core model with added ram to 32B
The base Quad-core model comes with only 12GB ram but I am debating whether to start with this and add cheaper Ram.
What do you guys think is most important for Photoshop to have 6-core or more ram?
More Ram the better (dont use cheap stick, buy the same Ram stick as specified by Apple. (best to not mix)
