It seems no matter how much ram you have installed in your pc, 3d SM keeps chunking a whole lot of your resources, i´m tired of having to restart my machine after working with other programs only to launch 3dSMax, i have 128 megs of ram, plenty of hd space and feel like im having only 256 k of ram when working with this program. Im considering to change my SO to WinNT or 2000, is anyone out there using that combo? (3DSM/WinNT or 3DSM/Win2000). I need to know which SO brings me the most of my pc. Thank you all!
