I usually check out reviews on cnet.com or pcmag.com.  They have top picks and you can read about the advantages and disadvantages of each.  Most decent new computers should easily handle cs6 (just not the cheapest options).

We really need to stop meeting like this. Lol. As far as finding a computer that will work amazing with Photoshop you know Derek doesn't mind helping you out. He's the one that helped me out getting mine to work with all the programs I use and it turned out amazing and super inexpensive.

Ehh I'm sure we can manage. :) and yeah he said you should pick up the parts at newegg and take them into a trusted computer shop that you know of down there to get them to put it together and put the win 7 on it for you. He went into detail about it but it would probably be easier if you talked to him about everything you'd need exactly, if you like of course. :)
