You odnt need the DVI cable, if its a DVI monitor then it will have its own cable, and if its a vga monitor the video cards have adapter plugs so you can still use it.

The monitor should definitely come with the DVI cable, if it doesn't I would take that as a MAJOR turn-off and not even buy the monitor. Thats just me though.

About the 64-bit thing...
In Vista, 32-bit will support more than 3GB RAM, that was a problem in XP, but not in Vista.
Since you use Maya 8 though, you will probably do well to get the 64-bit OS. I use Maya and 3DS Max too and I find them running great on Home Premium 32-bit with 2GB RAM (I am planning to get 2 more soon). It depends on how seriously you model and animate. If you do real serious stuff, you will do best with a high-end quad core, or at least a strongly overclocked q6600. I know this from experience. I have my QX6700 oc'ed to 3.3 GHz.

Good luck on your build though =)

thanks...i took a class of that in school and can make some pretty cool stuff.

off topic but can i transfer the stuff i made from maya 7 to maya 8? my dads pc screwed up and he had to reinstall windows. thankfully, he saved my maya stuff. its the PLe version because the real one is too expensive.

yes i believe you can. I've never done it with maya but I have with 3DS Max so I assume its the same.

Ya I know the software is expensive, if you are a student, you can go to journeyed.com and they give HUGE discounts on the software. Thats where I get mine.

pm me some work you have done, I would like to see.
