yeah, of course they are different. But you dont instantly forget how to model when you swap programs.

Sketchup FTW dude. Sketchup RULES for quick and dirty stuff!

Gmax is a dumbed down version of max 6 I believe...Never used it...

3d programs are really just a matter of preference type deal....Whatever you like, use.

Max and Maya are the two largest software packages, but lightwave, houdini, Softimage|XSI are all really great too...Sketchup RULES for quick and dirty stuff!

Blender, Wings 3d, modo, mudbox, and zbrush are also some neat 3d apps...

I work for an architectural viz lab, and we use 3ds max for the most part..We use sketchup pro every once and a while too.

Personally for my own projects I use XSI for modeling, and max for textures and rendering, mostly because its what I use at work and its easier for me...

All are extremely expensive, but I must say after I dropped a few G's on max a few years ago, it only fuel'd my passion for the whole thing!

Maya is the most common ap in the entertainment industry, so learn that if you may want to do some work in that industry...

If I were you I would use the free version of sketch up to build your case model, its fairly easy to use, do the tutorial and your off!

Edit:

Oh yeah check out 3dbuzz.com and 3dtotal.com for some great tutorials.
