    Default best iMAC 5k configuration for imaging

    I'm a medical diagnostic specialist (nuclear an Radiology) and use OSIRIX for this purpose to review the images.
    As a hobby I use Photoshop and Lightroom (before Aperture) to do my photo editing and I use large datasets.
    I would like to buy a IMAC 27"5k because of its great performance and resolution.
    1. Do I need an upgrade to the standard, and if so what do I need to expand (RAM,SSD or 7i vs 5i)?
    2. I want the best option within the best budget and do not want to spent money on upgrades I don't really need.

    Get a minimum of 16GB RAM although if you are so inclined it is user upgradeable so you could get the base amount of RAM and upgrade it yourself which would be cheaper.
    The i5 vs i7 is less important.
