You just need to use NVIDIAs SEARCH option to search for the driver you need.
Looks like it is this one

After download that ,just goto runlevel 3.

Then from there installthat by the following command:

#sh <path to that file>

Now it'll ask to accept the agreement and thats all. Installation will start .

You have to install the following pkgs first,

Kernel-devel,kernel-header fo your distro and gcc.

Then you can install that nvidia driver.

Which distro you are using ?
