Windows 8 desktop or try to find a new computer with windows 7 for photo editing

Soon I might need to buy a new computer(mine is 4 yrs. old and seems to be slowing down) and I'm worried about Windows 8.  I'm now using a Vista Home Premium desktop.  I'm OK with computers, but not great, so I'm worried that I'll have problems with Windows 8 after reading about the changes.  I'm also worried that my existing programs and hardware won't work with it.  I have PSE 10 and Dpp, will they be compatable?  Hope these questions make sense.  Should I try to find a new desktop with Windows 7 or just take the plunge and go for 8?  Any help that I can understand will really be appreciated.
