X11 and NVidia

This file isn't nearly as interesting as it was several years ago when I had a 35” tube TV and a 17” monitor hooked up to my NVidia card. The important thing to note is that the non-free NVidia drivers are installed; the glx module is loaded in the “Module” section, all the Display Modes for my LCD TV are present, and the HorizSync and VertRefresh are set according to the manufacturers manual.
