System requirements query for CC

I need some help with the system requirements. I understand them fine but I have to purchase a computer for work where I'll be using Photoshop, illustrator and InDesign only for 40 percent of the time and the rest will be general office work and using Windows 7 Professional 64. I have looked at Lenovo and there are 2 options that I need help with.

Processors:

Intel Core i5-6400 Processor (6MB Cache, 2.70GHz) or Intel Core i5-7600 Processor (6M Cache, 3.5GHz, max. 4.1GHz)

Graphics card:

NVIDIA NVS315 (with DMS-59 to dual DVI single link dongle) - 1GB DDR3

NVIDIA NVS315 (with DMS-59 to dual Display Port dongle) - 1GB DDR3

Nvidia Quadro K420 (DVI, DP) - 2GB DDR3

Nvidia Quadro K620 (DVI, DP) - 2GB DDR3 NVIDIA

Geforce GT730 2GB DDR5 64bit DP High Profile

AMD Radeon R7 350 2G DDR5 128bit HDMI High Profile ( I think this is only compatible with Windows 8)

The rest I understand as both options have

RAM
8GB DDR4 2400 UDIMM

Hardrive
1TB Hard Drive, 7200 RPM, 3.5", SATA3

I would greatly appreciate and feedback so I can narrow down the choices and make an order.

out of those choices, the i5-7600 and quadro k620 would be good. however, i would also like to see at least 16gb of ram and a 256-500gb ssd.

Thanks RoninEdits,

I'm limited due to company budget so am looking at either

the Lenovo M710  i7-7700
Hardrive
1TB Hard Drive, 7200 RPM, 3.5", SATA3
8gb of ram

Using the integrated Graphics card Intel HD 630

or

the Lenovo P310  i5-6500
Hardrive
1TB Hard Drive, 7200 RPM, 3.5", SATA3
16gb of ram

Using the integrated Graphics card Intel HD 530

Now I need to work out which is better of these 2 as I still need to fit a monitor in the budget

if your company will allow adding/upgrading components as needed or later, the i7-7700 cpu would be a slightly better option to upgrade with more memory, ssd, video card, etc. if the system has to run as-is with no upgrades, i would lean towards the i5 with the 16gb of ram.

Have a budget of $1500 which has to include a monitor...
I agree with you I think it's looking at one of the following:

ThinkCentre M710T

Intel Core i7-7700 Processor (8M Cache, 3.6GHz, max. 4.2GHz)

8GB DDR4 2400 UDIMM

Geforce GT730 2GB DDR5 64bit DP High Profile

1TB Hard Drive, 7200 RPM, 3.5", SATA3

Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 10 Pro

1,246.00

Or

Intel Core i5-7600 Processor (6M Cache, 3.5GHz, max. 4.1GHz)

16GB ( 8 + 8 ) DDR4 2400 UDIMM

Geforce GT730 2GB DDR5 64bit DP High Profile

1TB Hard Drive, 7200 RPM, 3.5", SATA3

Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 10 Pro

$ 1,224.00

Both have option of 128GB Solid State Drive, 2.5", SATA3 for additional $66

if that's your budget in us dollars, you should be able to get a full system for around $1k-1.2k. dell, hp, lenovo, all basically the same. the lenovo IdeaCentre Y700 has an option at $1k with an i7, 16gb ram, 128gb ssd+hdd, gtx 1050 ti...

Sadly the budget is in Aussie dollars so 2K max including monitor
I went back to Dell and they have offered me

XPS 8920

7th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.2 GHz)

16GB (2X8GB) 2400Mhz DDR4 Memory, up to 64GB (additional memory sold separately)

256GB M.2 PCIe x4 SSD + 2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive

NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5 Graphics Memory

Dell UltraSharp 24 Monitor U2417H 23.8"

This all falls into line with your recommendation the price is just over 2k but we are negotiating this as we have purchased all our office computers from them so the only reason this deal won't go through is because the OS is windows 10 and our office runs on OS 7 professional so it's up to my manager otherwise it'll be with Lenovo but not with these specs and price.
