Yes, the 'generic' Geforce 'nv' driver you chose is correct and should work fine for 2d graphics work. If you want to install the 3d accelerated graphics drivers, get the newest driver from:

For you monitor, proper configuration of an LCD is something I have no direct experience with. However the configuration must be placed into the file:
/etc/X11/XF86Config

which is the file that configures all of the X11 server's settings. There is a monitor section here, and you will need to edit this section with information specific to your LCD. Getting that information and the format of entering I don't know, but if you post a short excerpt of the file, or attach it here someone may.
