Desktop PC/Workstation for Photoshop (DSLR)

Hi there,

My desktop PC is getting old, the mainboard sucks, upgraded multiple times, replace processors, etc. And I often have hardware issues.

I need to buy a new one and the main purpose I still use Windows is Photoshop (Mac is not an option for me).

Since I'm tired of building my own I thought about a) Lenovo Thinkstation/centre b) HP Workstation or a refurbished option of those two.

Budget is around max 1k EUR as I only use it personally.

What would you recommend (and why) in terms of processor/brand/graphics card? I'm thinking of an I7 (vs Xeon) and Nvidia Geforce (vs Quadro). It should be upgradable if necessary, thus desktop tower. E.g. the Lenovo M920 models.

I'm unsure about cores/threads and GPU in terms of what makes sense for photoshop that's why I wanted to ask about expert opinions.

Thank you!
Christoph
