Here's what I get at the end of that output:

Although, I don't think the nvidia driver cares what brand is on the card. Uh, wait a minute, you said it's a Mad Dog Terminator.
I changed video cards recently and had to reinstall the nvidia driver. I went from a clunky GeForce4 MX to a peppy GeForce2 Ti.
Don't know what else to tell ya.
Edit: Oh, I guess you were saying 'find out' if that brand is the problem. And I doubt it.
Edit 2: Also, speaking of video, xdpyinfo shows some interesting stuff also.
