OR

ASUS ROG Strix Z390E + PNY Quadro P2000 + i7-8700

Despite what you might think Photoshop does not use the graphic processor that much so as long as it meets the Spec almost anything will do - not much point in paying for anything more than a decent card with 4Gb that supports OpenGL. Spend what you save on a good CPU - go for at least i7, and a a good SSD,

Just a thought about the new DT.  I have a SSD for all programs and run twin 4 tb drives running RAID1 mirroring.  If I run out of space, I just migrate to twin larger drives and never touch the programs.  Good luck!!!
