I have a few quick questions regarding Cuda. I just purchased a new "gaming" system and have been thinking about the GPU crunching that some of you enjoy. Up until now I have ignored all the CUDA talk because I didn't have a system with a V card that would run it. Basicly I am a newby to the whole Cuda thing.
I've spent the morning reading about Cuda and the Cuda forums over at Nvidia. But I don't feel confident that installing the driver won't hose my nice shiney new system. So here are a couple quick questions
Will installing CUDA drivers for my video card replace the current drivers that shipped with my system or will they work along side the original drivers?
Will installing the CUDA drivers make game play less enjoyable or limit the system?
After installing the new drivers will the graphics controlls be replaced?
Would my wife notice the changes? (LOL)
