Where to find a professional.

I know nothing about modeling, but today in the shower, I had a brilliant idea, and I want to find a professional, or near professional who can make a 3D model of an erect penis. So I'm not coming here to find the professional, I'm coming here to ask if you'd know where I COULD find the professional. I don't know where to start looking.
Building a machine for Blender's Cycles

My PC is showing its age while rendering in Cycles. I'm rendering with a Core 2 Duo at 2.8Ghz. Rendering simple scenes have become overnight events. I'm considering building a new PC. Not necessarily right now, but definitely by the end of the year.
I have no idea what GPU I'll be using. According to benchmarks, the GTX 5xx cards currently have the fastest rendering times in Cycles. Even though the 6xx cards have more CUDA cores, they aren't as fast and I don't entirely understand why. Will they eventually catch up to, or even surpass, the 5xx cards in rendering times as more drivers are released? Should I wait until the 7xx cards are out and prices on older GPU's drop? Or maybe 7xx cards will have the best rendering capabilities, I have no idea. In other words, what should be the best time (within the next 6 months or so) to get the best bang for my buck as far as rendering Blender Cycles with CUDA goes?
