That would be 8.3, the most current. There have been a lot of OpenGL changes since 6.5, in Lightwave and OSX as well. For example, if you used 7.5 on Tiger, you'd have to switch your preferences from Mouse to Tablet mode, and your pointer would stop at the edge of the screen while rotating the view. There was also a nasty graph editor crash associated with OpenGL.

I'm not sure, but I think if you upgrade now, LW 9.0 will be free when it comes out at the end of the year
