shader 5.0 is dx11. max 2013 only supports dx9 which only supports shader 3.0

beyond 2013 is covered by nda so can't say anything.

probably 8 xeon e7 cpus & multiple quadro 6000s on one of these.

if you have a money tree. that's about £28k just for the processors.

or a high end i7 & a gtx 680 for regular mortals. head over to toms hardware & see what's hot.
or wait for stabby :)

Just buy the best gaming rig you can afford.

Otherwise, tell us what specifically you do with 3DS Max and we'll be better able to help you out.

kinda vague criteria you got there, if you really want the best its something along the lines what AS suggested
