Submission + - askslashdot: is it worth upgrading an old GPU to a newer one for OpenCL support?

genik76 writes: I currently have a Radeon HD 3870. For research purposes, I downloaded and tested oclHashcat-plus, only to notice that my GPU doesn't support it (no OpenCL support). I considered upgrading my GPU to something supporting OpenCL, but it is not worth it just to use one program.

Is there any advantage in having a GPU supporting OpenCL in normal home computing usage? Besides browsing and word processing I do some occassional image processing, programming (Eclipse) and video processing.
