It works, but not convenient. For one thing you don't even have a
command line.

If you really need a consumer OS, get a Mac, otherwise get two Linux
boxes for the same money. 

Gromacs does not have much use for a good graphics card. However if you
want to run graphical analysis (like VMD, pymol, gopenmol) a decent
opengl card is nice. Any new nvidia or ati card gives good performance.
