Going to purchase a new Imac for my wifes Photography business. She uses Photoshop CS5, Lightroom3, Photo Mechanic and works mostly with RAW files We are going to purchase
3.1GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
2560 x 1440 resolution
4GB (two 2GB) memory
1TB hard drive1
AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 1GB
We are curious if its better to spend the additional $100 to upgrade the Video card to 2GB or if we should spend the money on additional RAM?
She may dabble in Video editing as well in the near future.
