Hi I'm posting for the first time so I'm not share if this is the right forum. I'm making my first pc for game development and I would like to know if I need a workstation gpu or can I use a high quality consumer gpu like a Radeon HD 7790 or Geforce gtx 690? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm doing my OpenGL coding on an ION2 (aka GeForce 210, 16 cores, 512Mb) with a single core N450 Atom. I don't think there is a GPU around that has OpenGL 3.3 support and that has worse specs than this ION2.
So I guess yes, a GTX690 would suffice

Basically get a special gpu if you do really special stuff on it.
If you run the games you make for other people or model a zombie, youll be fine with anything above an integrated gpu...
