ARCHICAD 6.5 is not compatible with the older 64K Macintoshes.
64MB minimum
128MB or more.
Hard Drive Space:
200MB minimum free hard drive space required for full installation. Free hard disk space after installation dependent on model complexity, more than 200 MB recommended for complex 3D visualization.
Video Card:

24-bit TrueColor with a resolution of 1280x1024 pixels.

17" high-resolution multisync monitor minimum.

19" or larger.
Memory Settings:
Turning on Virtual Memory can boost the performance of ARCHICAD (and is required by Windows).
We recommend to use the system's default virtual memory settings.
Plotter and Digitizer Drivers:
All major plotters, printers and digitizers can be driven directly from ARCHICAD and PlotMaker, including Benson, Hewlett-Packard, Calcomp, OCE, Graphtec, Houston, EnCad, Roland, Summagraphics, Selex, Texas Instruments, Mutoh, Mimaki, Versatec, Xerox and Wacom. No additional software is required.
(*) Note: ARCHICAD 6.5 can run on a display with a resolution of 640x480 pixels / 16 color (sometimes it has to be started in VGA Mode for verification purposes) but some dialog boxes do not fit on the screen, thus making the proper usage of the program impossible.
