OK so the Graphics card other than GPU have less role in the MD study?


Not if the GPUs differ too much.


GTX 980 is costlier than Quadro ? could you please tell me what size i should go 6GB,4GB or 2GB Card ?


Assuming this card is only required for VMD analysis, 4GB might be reasonable.


Btw, if you want the best performance per dollar, replacing the tesla by some high end GeForce cards might also be an alternative. The GeForce lack ECC and are so harder to detect when broken, but they are a lot cheaper and you could therefore try to build a system of three or more GeForce Cards along with a 6-Core at least.
