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.

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