You may want to check out a package called molimage, which was written by
a colleage of mine, Duncan McRee. 
It sounds like just what you are looking for. Its a windows
based protein viewer, and has a very nice interface for rotating, clipping,
coloring, labeling, vdw surfaces, and cpk solids. It also has a ray-tracer
which can be used to generate really eye-popping rendered images. I use it
with a Pentium, but performance on a fast 486 is also quite acceptable.
I think he is selling it for around $100. You can drop him a line at
dem at scripps.edu
