Hello everyone,

i own a 4-year-old system :
athlon 1ghz
256mb ram
32mb GeForce2

will i be able to run lightwave 8.0? i don't care wether it will run or crawl
as long as i will be able to model and render some scenes
for non-professional home use
what about lw 7?

thank you in advance

yeah no problem, i run lightwave 7.5c on my sony laptop which is a celeron 600mhz with 256 ram and a 11 mb video card..i also run lightwave 7.5 & 8.0 as well..mostly on my dell 733 pIII which has a geforce 4 mx card and 758 ram...

i really should get a new pc but these pc's run lightwave just fine for now including fprime as well...which you really should get!

lightwave is good on older systems as it's requirments are pretty low to have a good feedback on a pc..maybe down to the split applications though i run modeler and layout no problem together on the sony laptop..the only downside is that renders take longer than on a faster system for the most part.
