How do you recommend system specifications for Microsoft office 2010 starcraft ii and adobe photoshop cs6 so that they can run on the PC?

Look at the published specs for the program, and select the highest ones. For example, Office 2010 has fairly modest system requirements, while "Starcraft II" and PhotoShop have fairly high ones. And it will depend on which versions; "Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty" ran tolerably well on my dual-core system with 2GB of RAM, but the expansion "Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm" completely bogged it down.
The key thing to remember is that the published system requirements are generally absolute MINIMUMS to get the program to run at all; you will almost certainly require a faster processor and more RAM to get decent performance. I recommend at least 4GB RAM. Other things to look for are screen resolution (recommended minimum 1024x768), OS service pack updates, and video card.
