for educational purposes your CPU should suffice.

Maybe look into the GTX750 Ti if you want something that is low cost and low power. I haven't looked at how fast the R9 270 is but I have a feeling the 750 Ti will be a better value if you start factoring in power consumption.

according to golubev's estimations, AMD 5850 is better than gtx750, and a little worse than R9 270..
