    I would consider 8GB the minimum amount of RAM for running a Windows 7/8/10 install smoothly and comfortably; for photo processing I'd suggest twice that amount.

    And while I agree there's really no such thing as, "too much RAM", there *IS* a point of diminishing returns.

    Re: Looking at new desk tops. What to get.

    are you building or buying a desktop? i have an i5 7600k system and an i3 7350k system...both seem the same to me when using LR...the Pentium G4560 is a chip to consider given it's price. that's if you're building...

    I like the i5 processor better than the i3, and hopefully the 'little faster' means more than 8GB of memory in which case you are good!

    I'd echo the shouts for an i5 (or even i7) processor wise (and at least 8GB of ram). What I've really found made a huge difference with photo and video editing though was upgrading to a solid state drive. It's a pleasure to click on the photoshop icon now and for it to load up in about a second, rather than waiting for minutes (felt like hours) before I could do anything. My current setup is an i7 with 8GB and upgrading my drive to SSD made an unbelievable difference. It's worth every penny.
