I am setting up a new home workstation to develop physics models which will benefit from using Cuda.
I have a dual core with 3.0 GHz Pentium cpu’s, and 2 GB of RAM.
I installed a GeForce 9600gt video card.
If I want to perform honest tests that compare running code which is optimized with Cuda to exploit GPU to
code which only uses CPU, do I need to install another video card to use with my monitor (so that the GeForce 9600gt
is solely used or running my model, not also used for displaying console activity)?
Which is the best way to set up a VNC which will allow me to display console from my MacBook Pro?
Microsoft had a free ‘remote desktop’ application that was trivial to install to allow me to view a windows PC,
but I’m having difficulties finding a similar type of application to view the linux box (it somehow doesn’t sense the
Nvidia Cuda driver when I use some 3rd party VNC applications I found on the internet).
Dreaming of getting this new box properly configured to get back to doing physics,
