Time for a PC upgrade... Need suggestions
1

I'm contemplating upgrading my current PC from an old i7-6700K to one of the latest generation processors. But I'm technologically uninformed when it comes to what hardware is the best for a new Photoshop build.  It also needs to be Windows 11 compatible (my current processor is not).

I'm thinking I'll upgrade the processor, MB, and graphic card for starters, and probably migrate my other hardware, where applicable.  I currently have two 16GB DDR4 memory sticks (32GB total) and will likely add two more to get 64K total and migrate to a new build. I will also migrate three 4TB HDST hard drives, and a 1 TB m.2 SSD.

I would really appreciate knowledgeable suggestions on the 3 main parts I need to upgrade and make sure they are all compatible with each other, etc.  I don't have any problem spending $2K or a little more on the upgrade.  What I'm looking for is speed in running photoshop.  I do not do any gaming.

Thanks...
