    CS5 - Win 7 vs. Win 10 with mid-range CPU, SSD and good video card

    After analysis decided on a fresh install of CS5 on a Win 10 PC (use Win 7 compatibility and install as administrator). Tested on a old machine and that worked fine. Found a Dell XPS 8910 with i7-6700, 16GB, 2TB HDD and Win 10 Pro for $335. Going to migrate the O/S to a 1TB Samsung EVO 870...

    CS5 - Win 7 vs. Win 10 with mid-range CPU, SSD and good video card

    Thanks. I've got 3 Win 10 desktop tops and 3 Win 10 laptops that were all upgrades from Win 7. Day to-to-day use that are plenty fast but I'm not doing paid Photoshop work - they don't seem to be any slower than when they were Win 7 - but I don't really have hard data. I'm bench marking using...

    Will this Cyberpower GXiVR8560A work well for CS5?

    Thanks for the info. After a "difficult" situation with a refurbished Dell trying to find something I can setup here and ship 1,700 miles. I'm not too worried about changing the SSD but I need this to work for years. Her old Win 7 Dell XPS and U3011 monitor have required minimal intervention...

    CS5 - Win 7 vs. Win 10 with mid-range CPU, SSD and good video card

    I just got back from the local system builders location about having them build a system for CS5 with a high res monitor. The principal is insistent that Win 7 will be absolutely significantly faster then current Win 10 and that I'm "crazy" to want Win 10. Thoughts?

    CS5 has major problems on a new Dell XPS tower

    Gave up and are sending it back to Dell. I'm going to find something locally and get it all tested. I also managed to get a Dell U3011 monitor so I can actually test against a replica of hers. Thanks for the help. Over and out on this.

    Will this Cyberpower GXiVR8560A work well for CS5?

    Have a chance to buy used this system from a neighbor: CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8560A Gaming PC (Intel i7-9700F 3.0GHz, 16GB DDR4, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB, 120GB SSD, 1TB HDD). Other than the tiny SSD and that it doesn't include a DVD drive it seems to check all the boxes. I'm...

    CS5 has major problems on a new Dell XPS tower

    My daughter has an 8 year old Win 7 that she uses as a professional photo editor. It needed an upgrade as that didn't happen during the free Microsoft process and she needed a replacement backup system as her very old one was not usable anymore. The old system is Dell XPS 435T, Win 7 Pro...
