more RAM will speed things up when you are running applications , but you can add that later
Make sure you fit a kit of 2 x2 gig , low voltage

Not to any great degree.

For things like Maya you want an i7 and 16GB of RAM. The graphics card wont have an effect on rendering performance (except if you use GPU rendering to help, but even then the processor is still the deciding factor).

u will need more rams. is it 32 bits or 64 bits version? If 64 bits 8 gb will do, 16 gb is better. It will pointless even if u use 32 bits version considering 4 gb, rendering engine like mental ray will crash once it reaches 2 gb limit. Note that every view port is a real time render. A powerful graphic card will allow u to use hi quality or view-port 2 more easily with more realistic lighting and shadows. So, a good graphic card is better.After all u spend most of ur times working in the viewports.

How is it that you can afford over $7000 dollars worth of software but can't go from an i5 to an i7?

School id say!

Go a sandy bridge i7 2600k, a little cheaper and you'll get the 4 cores and HT. Also make sure to go 16GB, i'm also using 2 460 (768Mb) in SLI which is also pretty cheap.

I strongly advise to go a I7...

I use 3DsMax2013, Maya 2013, CS5.0 and all these components are vital if you don't want to tear your hair out.

"pinhedd", all autodesk products are available freely as student versions. These r all full functional version. Only catch is water mark and a small annoying pop up when u try to save ur file which always reminds u that u r using student/free version :D  . U can also get it from autodesk site (student community).
