Out of those I would go option 15 because it had the best value for ure money. The processor was the best in this Pc compared to all the rest and the quad core will help a lot with photoshop and holding a ton of things open at once (I actually have that processor) and it blows rendering away in gimp like it's nothing. The video card was also the best in this one comparatively to the other...a 1gb card will do all u need it to. Also the 4gb ddr3 is a good bit and will help u run things a lot faster and it came with 64bit os so u can always add more ram if u want. But ya #15 is my choice
Good luck!
