You can certainly install the CUDA Toolkit. And you will be able to compile CUDA programs. However you won't be able to run them on your local machine. If you have access to a remote Linux server with a GPU, you could develop on it over VNC, SSH, etc. You can even use NSight Eclipse edition on a local Linux machine to develop and run on a remote Linux machine. You can also run in the cloud on Amazon AWS nodes with GPUs. Finally, you could buy a new GPU if your computer is a desktop machine, or try out a Jetson TX1 for embedded / low power development with CUDA.
