    Urgent Nvidia drivers please!

    Hello. I recently installed ubuntu 13.10. All i have to say is that it lags so much on pc that it makes windows seem 50x faster. Just opening up the dashboard and typing in something takes up to 20 seconds. My log in screen is blank with only less than a quarter of the screen showing anything. I think this is due to the fact that ubuntu is not picking up my Nvidia drivers Ive been to the additional drivers tab countless times searching for the propriety drivers but I keep getting a error saying no drivers found.IVe used "apt-get to install nvidia-current" but that has just gifted me with the infamous black screen after rebooting

    Heres what happens when I run "lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga"

    championsonline@ubuntu:~$ lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga
