It might be strange to ask but i am asking because imI fed up honestly i bought a laptop that has a card that's great and all but not supported by adobe

So now I'm looking at a computer with:

Intel i5-2500

Asus GTX 1060 3gb dual fan (white colored)

Will it work in adobe programs?

It should work, but I do not recommend that particular combo because in this case you'd end up with too much GPU for the CPU that you're using it with, which can (and will) cause render errors and corrupt renders because the CPU can't keep up with the GPU. A lower GPU, such as a GTX 1050, would be more apropos for that CPU.

But i saw that i5-2500 is really a decent cpu

It is ranked up with the good CPUs

According to cpuboss and userbenchmark

Unlike for example my current i7-6500u which is ranked with trash CPUs

I mean they say even trash CPUs can run decent GPUs .... But this combo seems to me like a bit balanced no?

You mentioned the non-K version of the CPU, which can't be overclocked much. I personally tested that CPU, and it cannot compete with an i7-2600 of the same CPU generation when it comes to performance in content creation apps. In fact, the i5-2500 actually chokes in the MPEG-2 DVD export from the PPBM MPEG-2 DVD timeline with GPU acceleration disabled, taking almost as long as it took an i3-7100 dual-core CPU – and more than twice as long as even a Haswell-generation i7-4790K, let alone a Kaby Lake i7-7700 CPU.

You see, what you saw in the reviews applies only to gaming, which uses the GPU heavily but relatively little of the CPU. Content creation apps, on the other hand, use the CPU very heavily, and can also use the GPU to varying degrees depending on the workflow.

I wanna clarify that i just need it to be used at least instead of what happened with me with the laptop (that im selling rn) it recognizes the gpu but 0% usage all time.. or just uses 20% intel hd graphics.. that's a real issue

So im changing the machine from i7-6500u amd r5 m330 to i5-2500 asus gtx 1060 3gb just to get adobe to use my hardware

I may sound careless but i have not many options, im putting all my hope into that one i just want adobe to use my gpu even if not with 100% efficiency (that'd be cool)

You're actually downgrading to a much older platform, in this case, being that the i5-2500 is already over eight years old. As such, it runs its PCIe controller at only Gen 2 spec, and the 6-series chipsets require a third-party chip just to even support USB 3.0 at all (the 7-series chipsets, for the most part, have native USB 3.0 support). Also, the LGA 1155 chipsets support only two SATA III ports while the other four ports are only SATA II compliant.

You're right It's old

but clearly wins all comparisons on every website

In single core and multi core, clock speed, integrated graphics performance,  and pretty much everything

Also considering that im currently on a laptop so i have 0 extra sata and pcie ... etc  (you know laptop) so that's probably better than nothing

I would mention that i dont have any device that benefits from usb 3 .. the 1 usb3 on my laptop is kinda useless for me

XD

Ok for real if i wanna get a new cpu thats also decent, i would definitely go out of budget honestly

(this pc i found for 475 base price (might go less) But i never found better, all i find is either a crapy card with a midrange cpu, crapy crapy cpu with midrange gpu..... Or this good gpu with good but old cpu)

Okay, here's the deal:

Besides the i5-2500 now no longer competitive versus even a mediocre CPU of today (let alone the best of today's CPUs), its PCIe interface bandwidth will bottleneck some of today's highest-performing GPUs, and may bottleneck even future lower-end GPUs. Besides, the GTX 1060 is IMHO more powerful than that CPU. Remember, the MPE GPU acceleration was developed at a time when even the most powerful GPU was still weaker than even a mediocre-performing CPU of the time – a situation which has now been largely reversed (today, you will find even mid-range GPUs that are far more powerful than most of today's mainstream CPUs, to the point of their necessity for very high refresh rates at very high resolutions).

Plus, as I noted above, Adobe software does not quite take full advantage of a higher-end GPU of today but utilizes most or all of today's mid-range CPUs' processing power.

as far as it is higher then core i5 and has more then 8gb ram it must work with adobe cc applications, but my personal advice in buying a non expensive laptop for editing a 2014-15 macbook used or refurbished macbook pro looks to be the best option.
