When I searched for "consumable resource" I found on the SGE page:

"Consumable resources provide an efficient way to manage limited 
resources such as available memory, free space on a file system, network 
bandwidth, or floating software licenses."

Ok, but how to tell the SGE that it should use the graphical card CPU 
instead of normal CPU? How to identify those resources?
