I don't have any experience with Tesla yet, but there are just several
pieces of GTX285 arrive our lab.  Setting up the GPU for cuda programming is
straight-forward.  Cuda itself is just another application that make use of
nvidia proprietary driver.

Tesla is very expensive compared to highend home use GPU cards such as
GTX285/295, and it doesn't seem to be able to draw.

Both PS3 and GPGPU are reported for several hundreds of GFLOPS.  I didn't do
the benchmark myself (and I don't have a PS3).
