Solved GT or GTX for rendering?

Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
A customer has some 3D kitchen designer software.
You input your 'designs',it gets rendered and then you can give customers a virtual tour of a kitchen.

Not quite sure which niche of card it would suit?
GT is multi media and GTX is for gaming.

The finished thing is all 3D which kinda leads me to the GTX?

I know the software uses both cpu and gpu for rendering.

I'll be choosing a card with GDDR5.

Essentially the pc does nothing else but this.

I remember a similar software for garden design I once used that specifically needed SVGA and a resolution of 800x600, but that was back in 1997. Perhaps the creator of this specialised software have mentioned the hardware requirements on their homepage.

Regardsless, since there seem to be no need for items in motion, except perhaps for the viewpoint of the user (first person view in motion), I'd say a GT should be sufficent.

I would lean towards a GTX card but nothing too extreme. Look at the new GTX750, low temps, low current draw, no PCIe connector needed. Just coming out and targeted for the $120. (US) range. Certainly nothing above the new GTX750 Ti which starts around $150.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
