  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    3DMax is a CPU-limited app(benefits more from a faster CPU than VGA),so make sure you have a decent CPU along with a decent amount of RAM(Like 4GB).
    Even low-end cards like Nvidia GT 310M/HD 5470M can are fine for 3DMax.

    thanks for the info i was thinking about this laptop which can have upgraded ram.

    The HP G62-a26SA has the AMD Athlon II Dual-Core Processor P320

  3. I would recommend looking at Core i5/i7 CPUs for 3DMax,they perform better.
