Anybody have experience running max7 on Windows XP Pro 64 bit?
How is it? is it faster? is it stable?
I am purchasing workstation based on opterons and want to utilize this power, but i am not sure if it works with Max.
Any issues? Any pro's?
Please help, i have to buy it next week.

I just set up a rackmount system with dual opteron 275's ,a Tyan K8WE Mobo and a PNY Quadro FX 3400 card and Windows XP 64 Pro. Works greatwith 3ds max 7, I'm Rendering now.There is no real performance increase from the 64 bit capability yet as Max is a strictly 32 bit app, it gets installed into a subdirectory for 32 bit apps. The future is brite for 64 bit 3d graphics , however. Yes, it has been stable so far. sorry i couldnt answer your question sooner.

Thanks for Your reply Bigsmarty
By now my workstation is running well and i can confirm that it is causing no problems so far.
Have You checked Your system with AMD CPU info?
- Mine shows that HT1 are nor connected and one HT1 is running with 600 Mhz versus second CPU's 1000 Mhz. Support claims that it is normal...for certain motherboards...i am just curious if You had the same numbers with Your mobo ( same as mine )
My config is 2X 248's, K8WE mobo- BIOS from July - recent i think
Hope to see 64 bit max soon:) as well as Combustion, AE and other stuff
