I am not exactly sure which driver I am using between these two, however I
have found that setting up the driver and display are great with these
packages installed. I guess I would be using the most recent :)


After you use the "nvidia" driver in your Xorg.conf file, I would suggest
running, nvidia-xconfig, and then nvidia-settings while in X to configure
the card.
