Buy a new computer wi7 and the free 8 upgrade. BEFORE shutting down your old computer, recover any product keys from your old software. Adobe has a tool that uninstall the license key so you can reuse it. Belarc Advisor can tell you what you have loaded. Make sure you have an install path for loading you current programs onto your new computer. If you go 64 bit, you may want to go with the 64 bit of your applications to take better advantage of the chip. Belarc will also list out any free programs you have loaded. You will want them too. Make sure to back everything up to transfer to the new computer.
