Sorry for such a boring question but how do you choose the best work machine to advance in both graphic design abilities plus film and video. Without having to spend the enormous effort of switching machines.

If you want to pursue Video you will need better software than Photoshop perhaps Adobe Premier Pro and After Effect.   Video is more demanding than image processing and can take advantage of Nvidia Professional graphic Quadro adapters.

Here is an old link  CS6 time frame though old you should get a good idea though of what to get

IMO your best bank for you dollar  is purchasing a refurbished high end machine from a company like Dell that come with a three year warrantee.  I have purchased a few from Dell.  IMO Dell workstations are well built and perform well for years.  One workstation I purchased  failed within the first few  months.  I was able to get going a few time but call Dell. Over the Phone we determined that the mother board needed to be replace.   The next day there was a Dell service technician in my house the motherboard replaced and diagnosed run.  The  Machine has been a dream since than.  its over a year now.  I only use Photoshop. My File are on external USB3 drives.

The one that failed....
