computer speed

I'm running 3d max 6 on an hp computer, it works fine but it starts to get a little slow if I'm say rendering 12 coke cans for a display. I've got 960mb ram, amd athlon xp 3200+ 2.20 GHz, 4 gb of free space left on a 180gb hard drive.

and you want us to say?

are you asking if we think you need a better computer? if so, you have under a gig of ram, an ANCIENT cpu that doesn't do 3 ghz, and you don't have 200gb of memory. admittedly you are using max six, i dunno, maybe it's less power intensive, but 2009, i have an intel core 2 duo, a 9600gt, 4 gigs of ram, and i still have issues. which is why i'm getting a firepro v5700, 8 gigs of ram, a phenom 2 965, a monstrous cooler to overclock to 4 ghz, and a terabyte HDD. =D

what penis?

as to your problem hermanmunster, how big is your scene? telling us there is 12 coke cans in it doesnt help, number of tris would be better. Just make sure the cans have a sensibly dense mesh, and check that your computer inst hogged up with programs and viruses.

when rendering, shut other programs.

your computer basicly sucks balls.

either update it, or start learning to optimize your work alot more.

First of all, parker... WTF are you talking about. (me shakes head)

I agree with Vkotek. shut down as much as you can while using max. also, how much video memory do you have?

I couldn't find max 6, but for max 7 the requirements are pIII or amd processor at 500 mhtz or better. 512 meg of ram min 1 gig recom. 64 mg video card min recom 256 meg. 300 meg min swap file.

I would recommend clearing up some space on your hard drive, upgrade to 1 gig of ram, make sure you have the mimimum video card and use this program for killing any processes on your system. it will not remove them permenantly, you need to use msconfig for that. see how that helps you and let us know.

Vkotek, if you are black, of black parents, then I think somebody has added a few drops of milk to the recipe over the years!

@VK - Staines English lesson - "is", not "am" , "innit", not "isnt it".

If you're going to quote Ali G, at least get it right.

@ Nik C - he got a bit of a suntan since then, so might be confused. There's a picture of him in his g@y swimming trunks around here somewhere, though please don't link, it's distrurbing.

What Nick Parker is trying to say is that rendering performance is proportional to computing power.
