That's not really very big - unless you have possibly set your display mesh settings to extremely high - what do you have for the setting in MoI under Options > View > Meshing parameters > Mesh angle ? You really shouldn't have anything under 10 degrees in that setting.

Well, being more powerful or not doesn't really have anything to do with things crashing or not - maybe I have misunderstood what you mean by "freezing" though - do you mean that it is displaying things but it is sluggish, or do you mean that the program completely locks up and doesn't respond to anything at all?

Like vodkamartini says, you really should leave those settings to be all application controlled instead of forcing them to certain values for MoI - certain things particularly anti-aliasing can interfere with MoI's selection mechanism if it is forced on even when MoI has requested it to be off.

But maybe you can clarify what exactly you're seeing - when you say "freezing" what do you mean exactly? EDIT: oops I see that you did describe it, I missed that sorry.
