Designforretail do you meet or exceed the system requirements for Photoshop CS6 listed at System requirements | Photoshop - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/system-requirements-photoshop.html#main_ Photoshop_CS6_system_requirements?
CS6 or CC?
And how much RAM do you have?
I've got 16Gb in my Mini and it's quick (CS5.5 and CS6) with everything except text (because I have 4700 fonts installed - it lags when I select the text Tool)
I am doing the same with minimal tools and minimal RAM usage, but still it is so sluggish that sometimes menus go blank.
It never happened until I updated to Mavericks OS and also I am not sure if it is related to recent Adobe CC updates, but more likely it is about the crahs between Mavericks, Adobe CC and wacom intuos tablet.
