I like 3DS Max R3, personally. I don''t like R4 quite as much (familiarity rules). Some people like Maya more. Others like Lightwave and then finally some like Blender.

3DS Max is expensive (about $2500 last I checked) unless you get a student version for around $800-$900 (last I checked), but then you cannot use it for anything commercial and you must have student ID.

As for where you can buy it... I concur with jenova; use a search engine. I''ve never found it retail in a store. From my experience you must order it online and I know you can do this from Discreet.com. There are probably some other places. For the student version, try journeyed.com

Good luck

yep, you can get the gmax = 3dsmax lite for free.

in any case, Maya is the best, tough is "quite" expensive.

$2500! That''s expensive. I''ll try gmax out instead. Also, are you sure that no store (like BestBuy, Staples, OfficeMax, etc) sells 3DS MAX, or the student version?
