Hi, im looking to buy a computer for 3ds max with corona renderer. My budget is fairly tight, and since corona is rendering on the cpu im thinking i should spend almost all the money on the cpu, and buy a cheap graphics card. Am i thinking right? Or could i run into trouble?
Does modeling in 3ds max demand a good graphics card?

3dsMax doesn't require strong graphic card for modelling. The only limitation is GPU memory (VRAM), which gets used for showing textures in viewport which is unrelated to rendering. 3dsMax being outdated doesn't use compression and you quickly run out of memory and then speed of viewport drops to like 1perc. As long as you use 1 or 2K res max viewport you will be fine with any GPU on market that has 8GB of VRAM.

So powerful CPU and plenty of memory is all that's needed for Corona indeed.
