My System Specs

Default

MATLAB is one software that can take advantage of multicore/multiprocessor systems. So yes if you need it for simulations the hardware will have to go as powerful as possible. It didn't say anywhere that has optimizations for CUDA, so you can leave aside the TESLA hardware for the moment, and just get a regular desktop card. If it has GPU computing capability however (I might have missed the hardware specs)you could get a modern card for gaming and an older one for additional use to speed up the computing. I am thinking of a 9800GX2 as a second card, they are pretty cheap now. Sure you could go with a GTX460 also as secondary card. Depending on your budget you could start looking at 2P systems or SB-E LGA 2011.
