    Id say priority wise


    1)RAM
    2)Processing
    3)Storage

    1 being the most important, processing power would come in handy for things like rendering

    If your just doing images you could build a rig that could handle most home processing tasks instantly for about £500 easily.

    Dual core if your programs support multi threading and 2gb ram, if your using photoshop a couple of raptors aswell for its install and the files it writes.
