I am trying to make some videos in Blender, and I can not seem to be able to enable GPU rendering.
So far my CPU (I-2600k) is taking the blunt force of this and I would rather dump it on my video card.
Is the 6870 able to be used as a rendering tool for 3D work? If so, anyone familiar enough with Blender 2.64 to be able to explain how?
I can't seem to get any help on the forums for

thank you.

I found an option that says compute device and lists OpenCL as an option, but even under light renders all 8 CPU's are maxed out until the render is finished.
