Incredible value PC for the semi-professional photographer

Our Value Plus Photography PC offers a significant step up in performance.  Firstly it includes a higher quality chassis with internal sound proofing material and excellent cooling while remaining whisper quiet.  The chassis is neat and is of a professional design yet has excellent airflow to keep high performance components cool.

 

This system also offers a step up in processor performance by including the new Core i5-9400F.  These Core i5 9th generation processors offer significant performance benefits over the older 8th Generation i3-8100 by including 2 more processor cores and including turbo boost which speeds up the CPU clock speed to 4.1GHz when required.  The Gigabyte B360-HD3 motherboard offers better connectivity by including more USB ports including one of the new higher speed USB 3.1 Gen2 ports.  It also offers 2 of the super fast M.2 PCIe SSD connections.  This means both primary and secondary drives can now benefit from these incredible performance drives if specified.

 

The video card is also a significant upgrade as it is a professional workstation grade graphics card with high quality full 10-bit colour output.  Its a card on the Adobe official support list for Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC applications.  This card will work with regular monitors but when coupled with a monitor capable of displaying 10-bit colour, the image quality and clarity are truly incredible.

 

The superb 512GB ADATA SX8200 PRO SSD drive has been used and offers better performance than the drive used in the best value system.  This is an NVMe PCIe M.2 drive which offers incredible performance.  There’s space for your OS, applications and working scratch image area on this primary (C:) drive.  The secondary (D:) drive gets a capacity upgrade to 4TB.  Use this to archive your image catalogue.

 

The system memory gets a performance boost by moving to 2666MHz.  There isn’t a huge performance boost from high memory speeds in photography so there’s little point moving beyond this speed but by moving from 2400MHz to 2666MHz we see a useful boost.
