What video card will you be using?
I don't have Maya, but I'm assuming the video card you have will factor whether you'll be able to run it. Looking at this link
you'll need one of those cards at minimum.
I'm assuming you'll need a Workstation class videocard (such as a Quadro) for best performance, but I guess some current consumer videocards will work too.
Since I don't use Maya hopefully someone with more experience can chime in.
