Physics simulation wise Gazebo doesn't have any GPU (or even CPU multi-threading) support at the moment. There used to be an optional implementation in Diamondback and the code is still there but it's not integrated and there don't seem to be any short-term plans of integrating it again. Bullet, which is planned to be supported by Gazebo by Feb 1 2013, seems to have GPU support though so in a few months you might be able to make use of your GPU. In terms of support you should check with Bullet but if the NVIDIA drivers work properly there shouldn't be an issue I guess.

Graphics wise Gazebo really doesn't need that much bam, but hopefully it will be able to run physics on GPU soon. As long as the drivers are well supported on Ubuntu including CUDA and OpenCL you should be good.
