You can install NVIDIA drivers and CUDA-related software on Debian AMIs.
You just need to add appropriate entries to /etc/apt/sources.list*
with "contrib" and "non-free" sections, apt-get update and apt-get

I did this to test building of PyCUDA and PyOpenCL packages - but
because of problems with g1.* and cg1.* instances I was not able
to run tests on them.
