Glass showing up nearly black in cycles

Recently got cycles to work, only to discover my glass objects (cups) behave like glass when I assign it that material, but it is mostly black no matter what lighting I have on them. Do I have some setting incorrect? Or is the model messed up?

Is there an option right above that drop down? By default the only option will be "none" but if you have CUDA up and running you should be able to click the CUDA option then GPU will be available in the drop down.

Ok so I have discovered OpenCL is the equivalent to CUDA for Nvidia.
Can anyone show me what/where to download? All I know is that OpenCL is a language. What program am I looking for?

GPU rendering option not available 2.66 (ATI)

Im new to the Cycles rendering engine, and I am trying to enable GPU rendering for still images etc. However, in version 2.66, the option for GPU is not there (only CPU option available).
I am on Mac osx with an ATI Radeon HD 5750. How can I enable this?
