Re: Photo editing PC....

I don't know Macs, but the first things I did when I got my 50 MP Canon 5DS in 2017, were (in order of importance for improving Photoshop performance):

(1) convert both my system disk and working disk to SSD,

(2) upgrade my video board, for more Graphics Processing Units (GPU), and

(3) upgrade the motherboard to max RAM (32 MB).

My i7 3.4GHz desktop PC was made in 2012, and the upgrades were applied in 2017. It still works fine. I've used it for commercial composite images that required the PSB (PhotoShop Big) file format, because they exceed the maximum PSD file size. It has 12 TB of mounted disk space (1 TB is SSD for the two 500GB sys & PP drives).

I'll probably soon upgrade my graphics card for more GPU power, as they're being used more efficiently, and by more PP apps, every day.
