Cosmos Express Capabilities?

Not even sure this is the correct forum for this question.

I have the basic SW 2008 with Cosmos Express.

Is this just an introductory program? How powerful is it?

I have a medium complex frame with about 150 steel tubes of about 8 different section sizes. I want to load test it but it's drawn as an .sldasm so I'll have to re-draw it all as a .sldprt weldment. Is Cosmos Express going to handle this?

Just to test I drew a basic 1.5" sq tube cube with 18 pieces. All edges and diagonals. Tried a basic load test and at first it failed until taking the segment size to min, then it took about 10 minutes to compute.

(side question, what's the dif between Cosmos Works and Cosmos Express?)
