I have only a GTX 260 and that's showing as supported under the. 313.26 one. I must be missing something.

3 digit numbers are post 9xxx, Nvidia didn't want to go to 5 digits so they started again with 3.

I probably should revisit this and then call it solved.

Part of the problem with some of the responses was my fault, I did not specify that I no longer use SlackBuilds to install the driver (and haven't for quite some time), as I cannot see going through all that hassle to build THREE packages to do what can easily be done on a single command line.

The main problem WAS with the 304.84 driver, evidenced by the fact that Nvidia recently released 304.88.

SIDE NOTE: The 304.84 driver also failed with the newer 3.8.4 kernel.
