We recently switched from MDT2006 to MDT2009 sp 3 and xp with nvidia FX1700 card. Now we have problems with the graphics, it is slow to update a 2d sketch when it is in toggle mode if you go over to 2d wireframe it works OK. We also have problems when moving or rotating parts it freezes when trying to move it and when you press the toggle it shows the new possition.
Can you give a spec of your 64 bit machine?
I'd rather use WinXP 64.

I use MDT 2008 with a FX1700 on a 64 bit Vista machine with no difficulty.
Now to another problem. How do I add materials glass to my models. I create a layer and add the materials in render dialog then materialattach. The problem is that the material is only visible when I render it.
Search the internet for a lisp called AMCHLAY and use it to change the
part(s) to the layer you want and then it'll render correctly.

I have not had this much problem with MDT since MDT5. We have stayed with MDT 2006 in five years and it has worked perfectly but now we have big problems with MDT2009. I've tried all different drivers for my video card and various settings for system / performance tuning but noting helps. The only solution is to restart MDT every 10 minutes. If I have a large model up and want to change in a sketch of a sub-assembly, I often get error feture undo end. Sometimes the screen turns as mosaics.
