Hi! I'm going to buy a new set up for home and to use lightroom and Photoshop on. Do the above specifications meet the needs for these two to function well? I do consider upgrading specs eventually for premier but I'm still a long way off it.

 

Thanks!

I personally go for the most RAM I can afford and make sure your graphics card is good. I'm a Mac user, can't speak to the PC but there is this:

Photoshp minimum requitrements:

The system requirements have one glaring omission: you must have a good amount of free disk space for the Photoshop scratch disk. That's temporary working data that exceeds any RAM you may have installed (no matter how much you have it's not enough).

 

For most practical uses, that means 150 - 500 GB, depending on how large your files are and how many of them are open at the same time. Personally I would say 1TB, but I work with large files.

 

Without sufficient scratch disk space, Photoshop will simply close down or refuse to open at all. It can't work.

 

I have absolutely no idea why this isn't mentioned in the system requirements. If anything is a system requirement, it's this.

I would be concerned with Intel Iris Plus Graphics. More and more functions in Photoshop are looking for a dedicated GPU with dedicated Video Ram. See the link given by Mellisa.
