Question MAC OR GAMING PC BUYING

Basically I would like a mac because I am a photography student and it will be good for editing and it's a mac! So that's a another pro haha. On the other hand I like the idea of getting into PC gaming and i heard u can get some nice image quality with good graphics cards so im a bit stuck! Now I could buy a mac and have photoshop but I wouldn't be able to play many games and would have to install a lot of software to get certain games to work like a windows runner. Or I could buy a gaming PC which I could play games and still use photoshop but maybe not as good as macs have on display quality? Please help me! And any advice is good!!

You know PhotoShop is on Windows too, right?

How is it exactly nicer on a Mac, if I may ask? They're the same program.

Besides, Adobe is going Cloud based with their new media programs, so CS6 is the last suite-style you'll get.

Doesn't really have anything to do with PhotoShop ; that's just a display.

You can hook Mac displays up to PCs as well.

Macs don't have any different picture quality. The only difference would be the screen which can be made up on the PC with the same or better screen.
