you can also consult the debian wiki and try the "Debian way" although I've never tried that on a 64 Bit machine.

Make sure your sources.list includes "non-free" so it can access the nVidia drivers from the repository

aptitude update
aptitude install build-essential module-assistant
m-a prepare
m-a update
m-a a-i nvidia
aptitude install nvidia-glx

Edit your xorg.conf per the directions on the how-to or nvidia readme file

You can always get them direct from nVidia at

You will need the kernel sources, but it is pretty straight forward. Follow the instructions in the README.
