System upgrade advice? Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

Hello everyone - I joined ShareCG a while ago, and this is my first post. I had forgotten how great this site is, and what a great community it has.

I have a question concerning a system upgrade that I'm about to undergo. I am running 3ds Max 2009 Design, rendering with MR primarily, and (stupidly) running a Dell Quad Core, 4gb RAM with Vista 32-bit (I was ill-advised when purchasing this, my first 'dedicated' 3d PC.) I am about to purchase a new system since I am running out of memory all the time, and I'm thinking Quad i7 is the way to go, and Windows 7 64-bit - my question is whether my 3ds Max 32-bit will run on a 64-bit OS until I upgrade Max. Or actually whether Max 2009 even runs on Windows 7? One other question would be whether Autodesk (or one of it's resellers) would ever consider letting me trade in my Max 2009 32-bit for a Max 2009 64-bit - I mean, they cost the same to buy brand new, and it's not like I'm upgrading to the latest version! I know this is a long shot - just with the money I'm spending on new hardware, I would like to avoid spending another couple of thousand on software!

Any help would be appreciated.
