Thanks for the replies guys. Sorry I didn't write sooner.
The dual processors in the Media centre PC? I think that either a chipset for the motherboard that does processes for that or it's a media centre PC thing (I don't know a lot about them). Actually you could just have a kick ASS computer without knowing it! I'd look into it if I were you.
Just ordered a student copy of Maya 7! Wahoo! Can't wait until that arrives. Think I may give my computer a reformat to give it a clean OS to run on.
I'm soon going to give my computer a whole new update. These are the specs, if I can manage to afford it!
AMD 64 3500+ (around that anyway, depends on prices)
GeForce 6800 Ultra
Asus socket 939 motherboard
And a case mod for the hell of it, which i'm doing myself!
Can't wait for those specs! Ah the rendertimes, or lack of.
