Verified that there is a menu entry - "System -> Administration -> NVIDIA X Server Settings" after installing the hardware drivers and restarting once. I do have the message when checking under "System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers", 'This driver is activated but not currently in use.' No desktop effects can be enabled. Restarted the system, tried again, can now activate the desktop effects in "System -> Preferences -> Appearances".

Resolution setting worked; however, Nvidia X Server Settings didn't show up in menu until after restarting (to install the driver), logging in, logging back out, and logging in for a second time.

Different resolutions work correctly using the nvidia GUI config tool.
