Ubuntu NVIDIA drivers

Before we move on, you are doing this at your own risk. Just because it works on all the machines I have tested with does not mean it with will work with yours, or not harm/adversely effect your system. Legal stuff down, here we go.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
sudo shutdown -r now (or just go to the menu and click shutdown...)

After reboot, go to terminal and:
glxinfo | grep OpenGL
look to see that it correctly shows NVIDIA
