CUDA on system without discrete GPU


I have a desktop equipped with a GTX970 which I’d like to make use of over ssh while I’m not at home. I have a laptop with no discrete GPU on which I intend to be coding, and I was wondering if I could install the CUDA toolkit on it, just so that I can take advantage of features like auto-completion on Eclipse. (running Linux)

I don’t think it’ll be much of a hassle since I won’t be compiling the code on my laptop, but I’d like to know if anyone has done this before I dive into it.
