Hello, is it true that if you run CUDA kernals your screen will freeze if you only have one graphics card? I am afraid that when I run kernels that run for long time I will not be able to use my computer at all. I am getting the hp elite 450T with 2gb geforce 420 gt. Should that be enough to allow me to use my computer and run moderate-sized kernels? I am afraid that I cannot use my computer while running cuda. I would like to at least surf the web and listen to music while a CUDA program runs. I do not plan to do anything extreme, but it would be very annoying to not be able to do anything.
I am really excited to start programming with CUDA. It is part of my research project. Since that desktop only has one graphics card slot, should I cancel my order and get a desktop that has two GPU slots? Or is it not worth it since the freeze is very minimal? The desktop also has 9 GB of ram.
I am a little scared and not sure what to do. Thanks for the feedback guys.
