Well these days a lot of the gaming cards are indeed the same cores as the professional ones. They just have much different drivers and usually they change around the amount of memory. If all you do is professional apps and its for a company then its worth it if the money isn't an issue. But if your at home doing it for small jobs and money is more of an issue then its probably worth going for AMD or Nvidia and choosing the features you use to decide which card to get. If you use OpenCL then AMD will dominate over Nvidia but if you use Cuda then Nvidia is the only option(OpenCL tends to be better though). Also OpenGL tends to perform better on Nvidia last i checked too.

In the end it all comes down to needs/budget/wants.
