CUDA area of application

Hi all,

I have just starting with CUDA. I bought a laptop with the Nvida GeForce 8200m G chip. Ran most of the sample app fine except for one. Here’s my question, where can I best apply CUDA to? Which class of problems outside of scientific research is it best applied to? I am trying to think if it can be applied to Financial applications other than a few on the option/ derivative pricing. I working with databases alot, particularly with data warehouse. I wonder how CUDA can be applied to day-to-day application development and accelerate applications performance.

Basically, I want to know which class of problem CUDA is best suited to, can it be applied to on a more practical level other than scientific research…etc.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
