Well to install the GPU drivers you will need to be root anyway so can you logon as root?

If you're looking at the nvidia drivers then the preferred method to use those on CentOS is by using the packaged versions of the drivers from the ELRepo yum repo. Google them, install their elrepo-release package for your version of CentOS, then yum install nvidia-detect and then run it and install the package it suggests using yum install kmod-nvidiawhatever.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!
