You can start to read the sticky If you have a problem, PLEASE read this first
Then start with the very lastest driver as 260.19.12.
Also, one option I usually tend to use more and more is :
options nvidia NVreg_EnableMSI=1 in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf
You might give it a try. (couldn't MSI be activated automatically in some cases ?)
