Photoshop: CS6 Lag/crash Issue

Hello, I just got finished with Adobe "Tech Support" unable to help me with my Lag problem I've been having lately with CS6.

Quick Specs: DELLXPS430 Windows 7 ,Processor: intel 2quad @ 2.50GHz, Installed memory: 6 GB
System Type: 64bit
Pen and Touch: pen input available using a Wacom intuos 5

Long story short, came across an odd Lag problem when im working on a digital painting ( not specific to the problem) the File is at close to 1Gb, As I'm painting I notice the hand movement to photoshop movement starts lagging and my strokes appear secodns after I Lift my hand, So we have that issue.

photoshop was taking forever to load files over 80mb, sometimes 1GB will take nearly 1 minute to load.

So my questions is this...what is corrupted here? MY pc...or the Preferences in photoshop?
Im not a tech Wiz but I can keep up slightly. I know enough to get me in adnd around photoshop so put in layman's terms should suffice.

P.S. my drivers for the tablet are up to date... in fact all is up to date. Graphics card as well...however the graphics card is a new edition but still I did not have any issues for 3 whole months with photoshop until today... the model is a AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series

Try this: Go to Preferences>Performance... and click [Advanced Settings...] and set the Drawing Mode to "Basic." Restart Photoshop and let me know if the lag goes away.

Chose to reinstall. Photohop CS6 has been lagging as of the last 5 days or so... no reason why just out of the blue. And Ever since ive been trying to tackle the issue.. photoshop Freezes upon opening now. I dont know if its due to the directions given by adobe to fix it, not sure. But its getting progressively worse. I didnt have these issues when i first downloaded it, nor do I have issues with illustartor or lightroom. they all work beautifully. Its just photoshop. im seeing these same issues all over the web.

Most issues like that are caused by bad driver software. Also, after reinstalling, you need to redownload and apply all the updates.
