Hi guys. I have a friend who is looking to build a new system and I need advice. He is a big amateur Maya modeler/animator but he also want to game successfully as well. My question is whether he should go for a workstation card or a gaming card?

I was looking at either:

For the workstation side (better recs are always appreciated :D )

Or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
For the gaming side ( I am leaning for this mainly because I want my hand on a 5970! :p )

Either way the drivers won't work very well but I am wondering how to best approach this?

i am not to familiar with workstation cards but from what i know , the work station cards are specially made for graphic designing etc and not meant for gaming ( you can use them for gaming BUT wont get much out of it). The 5970 i think would be a great choice for gaming and animation.
