I am confused about the two terms CUDA and Coprocessor in Tesla GPU'S .

CUDA is an Archtictue that enables developers specially developers who develope resource demanding applications such as video processing software

Coprocessor is actually any processing chip (other than the CPU) that acts like the CPU taking some load off it
Example : Creative X-Fi sound cards have a proccesing chip and ram taking the Audio proccesing off the CPU and onto the sound card !

Now the Tesla GPU has CUDA and its a Coproccesor

Here comes the question... :o 
If the coproccesor can act like a CPU does this mean it can work with any software without supporting CUDA?!

And where the Heck can i get a hold of a K20X Tesla GPU online and for how much money?!
