I'm no expert, I'm a novice painter as well, I purchased a used compressor with a 22 gallon tank and a 5hp motor, it put's out over 8 cfm at 60 psi and a little over 6 cfm at 90 psi. It had no trouble keeping up with my HVLP and it actually didn't cycle that much.

The only advice I have is make sure your compressor puts out enough cfm to run your gun. If I didn't get the deal I got on my compressor there's a 15 gallon Dewalt compressor at HomeD that puts out 5cfm at 90 psi.
