I am looking to build a new PC primarily for Adobe Photoshop AI/PS work (more hobby than professional) with a budget around $1200. Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thx

I am good on OS, monitor or peripherals - thx
Disregard the error message as the MAX boards ships with an updated BIOS.

Similar to the others, as you can see for the budget the AMD Ryzen is going to be the best for your uses.
