ADW02 --
I have the same computer and have no problems with Ps or Lightroom. I have (over time) replaced most of its insides -- new graphics card (GTX 1660 Super), added more memory, installed a much faster wifi card, installed a bigger and faster hard drive, and upgraded the poweer supply. I suspect the processor (not up to trying to meddle with this) might be a bit weak for the most demanding new games -- but I don't play any of these. The new graphics card (which necessitated a power supply upgrade) does seem to have speeded things up. I also did have to reinstall Windows 10 from scratch (screwed things upo when adding the newer hard drive) -- and that helped some also.

It actually does pretty well for today's games, especially with just a GTX 1660 Super as long as you're only trying for 60 FPS. And it can do a lot higher on older/e-sports ones.
