HDRI is a wonderful tool for lightning a scene ; it depends of the quality of the map you are using. If your hdr map is a high quality map, few settings are required to gain a cool lighting. I would say in brackets that HDRI is something like Poser for modelizing characters. I mean it is almost too simple to get wonderful lightings with it.

So I used a few point lights and HDRI map to light the scene ; the following URL will explain how to use HDRI maps in details using 3dsmax: HDRI tutorial on Splutterfish

I tried different hdr maps to light my scene and the result was always nice, whatever the map was...

That is all, hope this gave you some ideas to persue...
