I'm no expert on GPUs, but I thought if you were going to buy a GPU to test exponents, the CPU does not need to be very powerful - the GPU is doing all the work. Obviously if one is not constrained by money, heat or power consumption, then buy the best of everything. But if one is trying to achieve a good performance system without spending a fortune, then buying both a high-end CPU and a high-end GPU, would be unnecessary.
