Default How Can I Improve My System?

So, since this is more of so a tech issue. I thought I'd post here. However, if this is the wrong place... please move it.

Ok onto the question.

So I have been a Maya user for a long while and I am running into an issue that comes around to us all, that is... the issue of having really complex/Detailed models slow/freeze your Maya Program.

I want to build really complex and detailed models but I think the issue I am having is with "Memory" am I correct in that thought? or is it something else?

I mean, I know I've got plenty of GB space. So unless something else causes it I am going with that. I guess what i am asking is, what can I do to improve my system so I don't have this problem? lol

Thanks Much

"MG"

What is detailed?
100.000 polys or 1.000.000 polys?
Maya can handle polys up to a point, it also depends on your OS 32 or 64 bit.
So please some more info

If high poly models are doing that to your performance then its most likely your graphic card. But to be honest, its hard to answer the question without system specs.

Hi guys! lol sorry for the lack of info. I am not sure how much you need but...

"Operating System: Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (5.2, build 3790)

Memory: 2046MB RAM

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS

Free Gigabit Space is 217.

Anything else?

PS: Would a "DxDiag.txt" help?

You could really benefit from more ram. Maybe up to 4 gb.
