Windows 8 or 10? and what configeration are best?

By rahiljainf2 ·
Which will be the best configeration for a system that i want for office use only. Currently i am using an outdated windows 7 system with 4 GB ram and o3 6th gen intel processor.
I use the system only for emailing and using some small softwares such as designing unique products for my employer relating to my business. I am a manufacturer of Aluminium plates used in major industries.
I need a latest and updated system that can be used fast with Photoshop and other Adobe apps without interuptions.

A new PC will come with Windows 10. There's no reason at all to downgrade to Windows 8.

Any hardware that meets the recommended system requirements for the programs you want to use will be fine. Use an SSD for the c:-drive.

Some steps.

OS....W10.
Set a budget.
Determine how much muscle the machine needs to run your apps.
Desktop/laptop/AIO.

My opinion......at a minimum.
500GB SSD.
2x4GB ram.

Always question "best."

The office just received a new desktop which has an i7-10700 CPU, 32GB dual channel RAM, all SSD (no hard disks) and because it's not a gamer, the GTX 1660 graphics card. It arrived with Windows 10.

Now there are even better desktops out there but we like to balance cost versus best. Yes, an bleeding edge Core i9 with 64GB RAM and the new RTX 3090 would be better but can you buy one and how much?
