    i’ve upgraded my old dell precision T3500 to a newer (i hope) renewed dell precision T5810 Workstation

    Processor: Intel Xeon E5-1603 v3 Processor (Four Core, 10MB Cache, 2.8GHz, 140W)
    Memory: 16GB (4GBx4) 2400MHz DDR4; Hard Drive: 512GB Solid State Drive SSD
    Nvidia Quadro K420 2GB (DP, DL-DVI-I) (1 DP To SL-DVI Adapter); DVD R/W Drive
    Windows 10 Professional (64 bit)

    will this hardware meet the demand of the current version of photoshop and lightroom? – i subscribe to the photographers online bundle. my old dell running only windows 7 would not run the latest ver.

    thanks for any help.

    Just did a search for system requirements for Photoshop and Lightroom, and according to the links below it looks like your computer mostly meets the system requirements for both apps, with one exception that I see. For Lightroom it says that Nvidia GPUs should support DirectX 12, but the GPU in your computer supports 11.2. Not sure if or how that would affect Lighroom functionality.

    thank you Patrick ,

    this is exactly the information i want… i just purchased this renewed dell precision a few days ago – it hasn’t arrived yet… if that nvidia card doesn’t work i hope i can swap it out for one that does.

    again i thank you for your good investigative work.

    i’ll see if i can contact a dell rep and see what they say.
