Need to get a new desktop that can handle Affinity Photo - ideas

Recommended Posts

Whilst we have a pretty high spec desktop, I demand so much of it using Affinity Photo, that sometimes CPU usage is 100%.   I use layers a lot.

My RAM memory usage has been up to 94%, though not at the same time.  It went into the spinning ball frequently and otherwise indicated that too much was being asked of it. 

Attached are the specs of my current desktop.  Am thinking of getting an Intel i7 (or equiv) plus 16 Gigs RAM.   Do you think that will suffice please?

Do you need a new computer or just more memory.  My Mid 2011 21.5" iMac desktop with 4GB installed memory was struggling with Affinity Photo and keep seizing up.  Just added 2 x 8GB memory cards giving me 20GB. Didthis a few days ago and no problems since.  Got them from    Dr. Memory     https://www.drmem.com/uk/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwuv78YSk6QIVBbTtCh3oYgBvEAAYASAAEgK_RvD_BwE

Good price v/fast delivery branded product.
