I'm not computer engineering/science smart enough to know if the types of number crunching graphics cards excel at would be truly relevant. I don't see why not and the nebula bit is highly interesting.

On my ancient ATI graphics card I was mining bitcoins at 200,000k/hash a second versus my quad core 2.2 ghz processors' 4-5,000k/hash. Of course that's a specific operation but still, 40-50x more?

And we're talking, literally, a $100 graphics card which you can put 3-5 on specific motherboards...
