Umm... have you installed the drivers?

"even after specifying a description of the card and VRAM"

What settings are you talking about here? What did you change in the file? The nVidia drivers completely ignore the VideoRam option, so if you're setting that, it's doing no good.

Additionally, what error is X giving you when you try to start it? Attach the log file -- /var/log/XFree86.0.log -- from right after you do a startx.

More info, basically...
