Good idea Stan,
I used to upgrade my computer to the latest/greatest every year. My main computer is over 4 years old and the two newer "faster" ones do not run my programs any faster. It seems what they have done is like down shifting my Porsche. It runs faster but does not get me there any sooner.
That said, a better motherboard and memory could make a lot of difference for your use. Especially with 36mp RAW files and Photoshop.
