Dear Experts,
We are using 3DS MAX for rendering. The current specification of PC are Core 1.5 3.2 Ghz,8 GB RAM DDR3,VGA 2 GB,Windows 7/64 bit,500 GB HDD. Rendering takes around 1 hour to completed. As I am not aware what the designer are rendering and what feature are they using. Please tell if the above specs are OK.

AFAIK, Vray only uses the processor for render, so the VGA card is not important.

If that is an i5 at 3.2 GHz it should be OK for small renders.

The thing you need to remember is that more cores = faster render.
So if you want to speed up the rendering you can:
- get a processor with more cores (6-8)
- switch to a multiprocessor platform or, the cheapest one,
- distribute the rendering.

Well, they are enough if you have the time.
If you don't and you want to decrease the time needed for rendering you need to increase the core count.
