ok so maybe do something like this...

this ram instead

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231084


get this PSU instead

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954

and get this case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119077

since there is integrated video, you can always add vid card later.. unless you want one now...

total w/o vid card: $477.47 and you get 10$ mail in rebate..

if you want a vid card now... get something like this..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102657

total $608.46 - $30 mail in rebate..

this way, if you find you're missing having a video card, you can always add one later...

i'm fairly familiar w/ MAX 7 as i used it a lot in highschool and this last year in college for a course. shouldn't you have a good video card for rendering? or do you care if it gets done fast w/ a good video card or would you rather just leave it on overnight rendering and maybe a few days if your onboard video is really bad?

just something to think about.

ok i got ya now. i thought that you were saying you'd need 2 GB of RAM to help run that...my bad...i'd probably suggest 1.5-2GB of RAM w/ a 7600GT for $40 more but the other card is good too if you don't wanna spend much more. they're about equal in "bang for your buck."
