Re: Suggestions

I've yet to see some definitive evidence that i7 processors are better than their i5 equivalents for photoshop or lightroom (there is actually some evidence that the latest versions of lr4 work better when hyperthreading is disabled).

My suggestion would be to replace the i7 by a i5K (say i3570K instead of i3770) and a motherboard which supports overclocking (i.e. Z77 chipset). Without pushing this set up much , my understanding is that this will give equivalent or better performance for a lower cost.
