Using Adobe Creative Cloud (LR and PS), along with various add-on filters and additonal editing programs, my motherboard (cpu and max memory) is not adequate. I presently have an i7 930, 24GB DDR3 memory and Win 7 Prof and 1000 watt power supply.  The motherboard is an Asus P6X58D Premuim.  Almost all my disks are fast Samsung SSDs including two small SSDs one for virtual memory and one as a scratch disk for Adobe photo programs.  I'm using 7 internal disks which are all SATA 3.

Graphics card is an NVIDIA 750 which I thought was on Photoshop's OK list but turns out to fall one model short of ok.

I'll either try to upgrade the board, the CPU and memory, or just get another computer.  I always have them made to order. 

I'm looking to find a motherboard which will be as future-proof for photography as possible,  made by a company that provides better support and updates than Asus.

Thoughts and suggestions are needed and welcomed.

Right now best choice would be Intel LGA2011-3 platform.

However AMD Is quite soon releasing Zen CPU's and 8 core 16 thread model should work well exactly for that use.

I agree with that wait and see what AMD will have and how good it actually is. Won't be long for release the 1st processors will hit before 2017. I think about mid Dec.
