For 64-bit scientific linux 6.5 workstation with ASUS M4A79 Deluxe 790 FX motherboard and 850W PSU the following GPU-cards are available at the moment:



1)  NVIDIA Quadro 1800 fx  <-- one monitor connected to DisplayPort, another one connected to Dual Link DVI-I  <-- CUDA development


to be added:

2)  ATI Radeon HD 4870     <-- for OpenCl development <-- GPU computing only



a)  how to add/install  ATI Radeon HD 4870 to above configuration ?

example: will I need dummy plug for GPU card ? can Linux handle GPU card adding automatically ?


b)  SDKs needed for above ?

example: do I  have to use OpenCl 1.1 and if so, which SDK ?


c)  software / drivers needed for above ?

Thanks in advance for any tips!
