heres how you do it

open a command line and do:

Code:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-settings linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`
then

Code:
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup 
sudo nvidia-glx-config enable 
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/NVIDIA-Settings.desktop
now add to what you just opened

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=NVIDIA Settings
Comment=NVIDIA Settings
Exec=nvidia-settings
Icon=
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;System;
save it and then restart x (ctrl+alt+backspace)

and then you should be good

all 3d should work right from that (it does for me, q4, and several emulated games)
