for all new nvidia cards that support the tesla unified architecture , the main difference between these cards is the number of streaming processor(sp) inside .

here some numbers :

GeForce 9800 GTX (16 sp compute capability 1.1 )
GeForce 8880 GTX (12 sp compute capability 1.0 )
Quadro Fx5600 (16 sp compute capability 1.0)

and the Tesla S1070 (4*30 sp and compute capability 1.3) (support for double precision floating point numbers )

check doc CUDA for more details about tesla architecture and sp and compute capability

Since Geforce FX, nvidia has offered GL 2.1 and this GPU is quite old (2002). I suggest a Gf 8 or 9 or Geforce 200
