I installed the nvidia driver by just installing nvidia-kernel-dkms (make sure kernel headers are 
installed and probably build-essential) with aptitude (maybe other pkg managers will work as well, 
but I always use aptitude).
So the command would then become "aptitude install -t experimental nvidia-kernel-dkms"

my current /etc/xorg.conf is al follows:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "nvidia"
