Is there any good software which plots 3d graphs and vectors. I just want to plot linear 3d graphs and vectors in 3d. I don't mind paying for this but it should be reliable and easy to use.

On MACs, there should be a decent one in Applications -> Utilities -> Grapher.

Depending on how much you mind paying. Mathematica is top of the line but has a hefty price tag, and can be a bit cumbersome. If you want something that is free, a little more user friendly, but much less "elegant." Winplot is good.

On a side note, many college campuses have Mathematica in certain labs, that's where I use it And if you do decide to go with mathematica and need some help operating it, let me know, and I can send you some useful demos.

Hope this helps.

I don't know if it can do vectors, but Microsoft mathematics is free now. It can do equations, inequalities, parametrics, and tables.

Also Maxima... It uses various GNU plotting software.

As said above, Mathematica is a really powerful tool, which actually does more than what you need. Matlab is a good too, but it also does much more than what you need.

You can also use one of these online graphers.
