I just looked at your xorg logs and let me clarify something I said.

Since you do not have proprietary drivers installed, it is trying to use the NOUVEAU driver for NVIDIA, which doesn't seem to support the model of your nVidia card. Before that, It fails on loading the nvidia module (not found / not installed) so it falls back to the nouveau. It since it is not supported by that driver, it temp could go to vesa to use vesa modes instead.
Besides "nomodeset" you could also use:
to get it booted initially to be able to install your driver.
There are 2 other options frorm your grub menu-
- Boot into rescue mode from the Grub boot menu item > Use safemode / low graphics... go to System > Administration > additional driver > install nvidia-current.
- Grub Boot menu > Press "e" to enter an edit mode > Replace "quiet splash" with --verbose test" on the line that starts with "linux" > press <cntrl><x> to boot into tty text console. These instructions are to install an nvidia driver on a fresh install...
Or you could install the nvidia binaries (see post #280 <--Link) nVidia driver 285.05 is latest and does support your card.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-'uname -r'
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
sudo apt-get upgrade
