2 Questions: 24GB DDR3 RAM 2TB HD or 16GB DDR3 + 256 GB SSD/2 TB and...
Oct 4, 2012

I want to upgrade my ~5 year old PC. I don't do games but like almost everybody here does a lot of image editing work in Photoshop (CS5). Question is, except for speedier boot times, is getting a 256 GB SSD worth it or should I just focus on buying more RAM like the 24GB?

Also, I don't do video editing (well at least not in the foreseeable future), do I need to go with AMD Radeon HD 7770 2 GB GDDR5 (Dell XPS 8500 special) or NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 1 GB DDR3 will suffice (Dell XPS 8500).

Thanks in advance.

José
