Hi, i was wondering what would be the best features to look out for when purchasing a new pc specifically for 3d studio max. Not just "lots of ram", but a more detailed description would be good.
checkout 'SLi' if you havent heard about it. You can get two graphics cards (PCI express x 16) on one mother board, and they can render alternate lines (one card does even line and one odd). I think you just need a motherboard with two pci-e x16 slots. ASUS and probably many other cater for this now. Beware of lower end graphics cards that say they are 'SLi' when in fact they are not full SLI, they only support multiple monitors but cannot share the load of rendering one frame..
