Will the computer I am looking at support 3 monitors and all the Adobe application?

by on September 17, 2012

Q: I’m new to website and graphic design. I am also on a budget so price is important. I use all of the adobe applications such as photoshop and illustrator. I need a good PC to multi task. I run two monitors now but would like to expand to 3 but that is not a deal breaker. Can you tell me if the following will take care of my needs?

    Are you happy with the performance of the computer you’re using right now? If you just want to drive a 3rd monitor you should be able to do that with only minor upgrades.
