NVEDIA quadro FX 580

I need some help in optimizing CUDA on my Dell T5610 provided with quadro Fx 580. I am not an IT personnel but a biologist and built this system for my research. Kindly guide me which programs i need to install to run the CUDA on this system. I only knew that Fx580 supports CUDA 1.1. And a CUDA tool kit is required for this purpose with some other specific visual soft wares. Can any one guide me ?
