Question. Please help. I have an NVIDIA Graphics Card. I recently installed Ubuntu and it ask me to install Nvidia proprietary drivers. What I don't understand is what is the difference between the two drivers listed. One reads, "NVIDIA Accelerated graphics driver (version 173)" and the other "NVIDIA Accelerated graphics driver (version current) [recommended]". Which one is the one I should install? Are they the same thing? Thanks. Here is a pic of what it looks like.
