Hello.

 

I have been asked to find a suitable PC for a design studio to Run the suite of Creative cloud products. For their own reasons they dont want to go down the Apple route.  Its not my real area of expertise but my supplier has suggested the following.  The two cheaper models I will upgrade to 32gb of RAM. Could someone please tell me if these would be good options and which perhaps might be the best?  Many thanks in advance.

 

This one seems the most powerful

Would stick an extra 16gb of RAM in this one

Thanks for the replies.

 

Reading through that article from Pudget Systems they mention that the  i7 11700K processor and 8gb GPU would be a good choice which this one has

This was answered on Spiceworks. I personally would go with a top-tier OEM and not a small company.

Not sure it was really answered on Spiceworks.  I was looking for suggestions on the machines I linked to but so far no answers on there. I kind of agree though that a known manufacturer would be better which is why I asked about the Punch systems as perhaps they are well known in this field but just not to me.

Please ensure your computer meets or exceeds the minimum system requirements to run Creative Cloud + OS + all other apps you use. Check each one.

Pay particular attention to Photoshop's new GPU requirements. See links below.

Any of those systems exceed the recommended configuration, so you should be OK. Personally, I find the 500Gb SSD limit today. But it will probably work for another couple of years. The only software that will challenge this configuration are Adobe Premiere and After Effects with the Adobe Media Encoder. And this only if you work with high-resolution videos (8k). So if that is the main task of these workstations, try to find answers in the video hardware lounge.

Bit more info. The current machine has just 4gb of RAM!  The graphic designer accesses it remotely most of the time using Teamviewer and the main apps they use are 

Illustrator

InDesign

Photoshop

They say they will subscribe to them all.  Im just not sure I want to recommend an unknown brand and a gaming machine but as said all three are probably more than capable of running these apps.
