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 biggrin.png

A normal consumer GPU unless you plan to do something special like heavy GPU processing, ubermodeling (?), video editing, rendering of hours long photorealistic movies...

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...
